Brother 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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 221:
221 Do not marry idolatrous women until they believe; a slave woman who believes is better than an idolatrous woman, even though she allures you. Nor marry (your girls) to disbelievers until they believe: a man slave who believes is better than a disbeliever even though he allures you. Disbelievers 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.
A ‘marriage’ between a believer and a pagan woman is categorically forbidden, unlawful, haraam, null, and void in the Sight of Shariah Law and in the Sight of Allah Subhanah. Such an abomination of a ‘marriage’ has absolutely no legal status in Islam!
The child born of such an unlawful union will be considered illegitimate and born out of wedlock in the Sight of Shariah Law, in the Sight of Allah Subhanah, and in the sight of the believers.
In spite of the manifest transgressions of the Laws of Allah done by your brother, he will remain your brother and all the rights that are due to one’s own brother will be due to him in full. The unlawful ‘wife’ of your brother, and the illegitimate child resulting from that union will have or bear absolutely no legal relationships with you in the least in the Sight of Shariah Law.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s 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,
