Answer:

 

Marry 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.

 

May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.

 

Your Question: my quetion is my brother is in US he is going to marry a christian girl..... and i am studying in india can i marry a hindu girl?

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 5:

5 This day are (all) things good and pure made lawful unto you. The food of the People of the Book is lawful unto you and yours is lawful unto them. (Lawful unto you in marriage) are (not only) chaste women who are believers but chaste women among the People of the Book revealed before your time when ye give them their due dowers and desire chastity not lewdness nor secret intrigues. If anyone rejects faith fruitless is his work and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good).


 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 221:

221 Do not marry unbelieving women (idolaters) until they believe; a slave woman who believes is better than an unbelieving woman even though she allure you. Nor marry (your girls) to unbelievers until they believe: a man slave who believes is better than un unbeliever even though he allure you. Unbelievers do (but) beckon you to the fire. But Allah beckons by His grace to the Garden (of Bliss) and forgiveness and makes His Signs clear to mankind: that they may celebrate His praise.

 

Dear and beloved brother in Islam, because the basic religion and beliefs of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) are so very close and similar to Islam, Shariah Law has given permission for a believer to marry amongst the chaste women amongst the Jews and the Christians, if they wish to do so. The basic wisdom behind this allowance and permission is that when a chaste good woman from amongst the People of the Book marries and moves into the household of the believing family, she would be inclined to accept Islam easily.simply because they believe in everything a muslim believes in except the appointment of Prophet Mohamed (saws) as Allahs Last and Final Messenger.

 

But Allah Subhanah has absolutely forbidden the believers to seek to marry any woman who is not chaste, and not from amongst the believers, or from the People of the Book. It would not be permissible in Shariah Law for a believer to marry a Hindu sister, unless of course she sincerely understands and accepts Islam as her way of life prior to the marriage.

 

Your Question: if yes what are the rules i should follow?

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 221:

221 Do not marry unbelieving women (idolaters) until they believe; a slave woman who believes is better than an unbelieving woman even though she allure you. Nor marry (your girls) to unbelievers until they believe: a man slave who believes is better than un unbeliever even though he allure you. Unbelievers do (but) beckon you to the fire. But Allah beckons by His grace to the Garden (of Bliss) and forgiveness and makes His Signs clear to mankind: that they may celebrate His praise.

 

It would be absolutely forbidden and unlawful for a believer to marry a Hindu sister or any woman who is not from amongst the believers, or from amongst the People fo the Book. Such a marriage, even if it were to take place, would be absolutely null, void, and unlawful in the Sight of Allah Subhanah, in the Sight of Shariah Law, and in the Sight of the Believers.

 

Your Question: if no then what should i do?

If you are so inclined to seek a Hindu sister in marriage, you may invite her to accept Islam as her way of life.and if you sincerely and earnestly believe that she has indeed from her heart of hearts, understood the tenets of Islam and will sincerely follow it as her way of life, and the Hindu sister, of her own free will and without any force or coercion were to revert to Islam.then and only then would it be permissible for a believer to marry her.

 

But if the Hindu sister wishes to remain on her faith and her beliefs, then it would be best to leave her alone and seek to marry only those women whom Allah Subhanah has permitted the believers to marry.

 

Unbelievers do (but) beckon you to the fire. But Allah beckons by His Grace to the Garden (of Bliss) and forgiveness and makes His Signs clear to mankind: that they may celebrate His praise.

 

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,

 

 

Burhan
