Marry a Hindu Lady
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.
Allah says in the Holy
Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 221:Do not marry ‘mushrik’ woman, unless
In light of the above clear
commandment of Allah Subhanah in the Quran, it is not permitted and it is
‘haraam’ for a believing man to marry a ‘mushrik’ (Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh,
Parsi, etc.) woman, unless they profess belief in Allah as their Lord and
Creator; believe in all His Messengers, all His Revealed Books, the Angels, the
Divine Decree, the Hereafter, and declare the testification of Islam: ‘Laa Ilaaha illallaah, Mohamed ar Rasool
If the girl you wish to marry
declares her belief in the Oneness of Allah, and believes that Mohamed (saws)
is the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, of her own free will; then it would
be legal for you to marry her.
But if the girl refuses to
declare belief in Allah and His Last Messenger (saws), the marriage would be
deemed null and void in the sight of Islamic Law.
Whatever written of Truth and
benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error
is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He
is the Only Source of Strength.
