Married hindu girl
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: What is the ruling of islam in this case.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 221:
221 Do not marry idolatrous women until they believe.
Islam has absolutely forbidden and prohibited the believers who sincerely believe in Allah and the Last Day to marry an idolatrous woman, unless she reverts to Islam first. Regardless of who attended the wedding, or where the wedding took place, or which law of which land registered the wedding, etc.; a wedding between a believing man and an idolatrous woman is absolutely and totally prohibited, unacceptable, illegal, unlawful, null and void in the Sight of Shariah Law, in the sight of the believers, and in the Sight of Allah Subhanah!
The union of the couple resulting from the unlawful marriage will be one of zina and the children resulting from such an unlawful union will be deemed unlawful. And above all, if the one who dared to transgress such a clear boundary of Islam and openly disobey a clear Command of Allah Subhanah does not turn back to his Lord in sincere repentance, he would have an extremely severe accounting in the Presence of The Lord Most Majestic on an Inevitable and Tumultuous Day of Judgment!
Your Question: Can he continue his life as muslim or he will be out from islam as per quran?
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 2526 Narrated by Anas ibn Malik
The Prophet (saws) said: Three things are the roots of faith:
- to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, "There is no god but Allah" (except for just cause like retaliation for murder, or zina, etc.),
- not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and
- not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action.
Dear and beloved brother in Islam, as evil and as heinous a crime and sin one may have done, as long as the person himself does not declare his intention to leave the fold of Islam.no one has a right to ex-communicate or declare a believer a disbeliever, regardless of the enormity of the sin he commits.
The brother who openly transgressed a clear boundary and Command of Allah Subhanah by unlawfully marrying a hindu sister, indeed committed a heinous sin in the Sight of Allah Subhanah. But as long as the brother himself does not verbally declare his intention to leave the fold of Islam and become a disbeliever, he will be considered a muslim, and all the rights that are due to a muslim will be accorded to him in full.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
