Answer:

 

Muslim marries Hindu

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 no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) 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 if a muslim girl gets married into a Hindu community, she is happy with the husband.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 221:Do not marry mushrik women unless they believe. A slave woman who believes is better than a free woman who does not believe, even though the latter may appear very attractive to you. Likewise, do not wed your women to mushrik men, unless they believe. A slave man who believes, is better than a free man who does not believe, even though he may be very pleasing to you. These mushriks invite you to the Fire while Allah, by His Grace, invites you to the Gardens and His Pardon. He makes His Revelations plain to the people so that they should learn a lesson, and follow the admonition.

 

It is prohibited and haraam for a believing woman to marry anyone who is not a believer. If she has already done so, she would have disobeyed a direct command of Allah Subhanah, and will be held severely accountable for her deeds in the Court of Allah on the Day of Judgment.

 

If a believing woman indeed marries a Hindu or any mushrik man, that marriage will not be valid in the sight of Shariah or Islamic Law, and in the sight of Allah Subhanah. She will be living in a state of sin for all her life, and her accounting in the Court of Allah on the Day of Recompense will be very severe and dreadful indeed.

 

Allah Subhanah, in the above quoted aayah of Surah Baqarah says that these mushriks invite you to the Fire, while Allah, by His Grace, invites the believers to the Gardens and His Pardon!

 

Your question: She then converts the sons into Muslim and stays with them. What would you say about such a case? 

If the believing woman has realized her error and has sought Pardon and Forgiveness from her Merciful Lord, and has, of her own free will, returned back to the Straight Path of Islam; the Merciful, if He Wills, will forgive all her sins. And if she has made an effort to convert her children to the deen of Islam, Allah Subhanah will reward her generously for her efforts.

 

The only thing we can say about the narrated case is that Allah Subhanah had Mercy on the woman, and gave her the opportunity to seek repentance and return back to the deen of Truth in her lifetime. May Allah Subhanah accept her Repentance and Taubah, help her, guide her, forgive her her short-comings, and bestow a generous reward on her in the life of the Hereafter.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
