Islamic marriage advice and family advice

A Muslim male and a Christian female

quran bible islam christianity

Asalaam walaykum

I had a question in regards to marriage between a muslim male and a christian female. They have done their nikka in the way according to islam but it was just a small gathering with direct family. Now the couple is planning on having a reception but plans on doing it in more of a traditional christian wedding. There will be no priest or minister and no religious vows or blessings will be said. They will walk down the aisle though and her brother in law will give a small symbolic speech (no religious aspect) and they will say their i dos.

My question is is this ok in islam??? Will the male be committing sin for participating? And also would be wrong to attend a wedding like this if you yourself are muslim? Please keep in mind although the attire (wedding dress will be modest) and all will be like a traditional wedding there will be no religious aspects to it. Is this ok???

  1. EVERYTHING IS A SIN SMALL OR BIG NOWADAYS. YOU KNOW IN ARE FAMILY AND MOST MUSLIMS TODAY ARE ALL DOING THE SAMETHING. I BEEN TO MANY WEDDINGS BECAUSE THE OTHER PERSON WAS A NEW MUSLIM SO THEY HAD IT IN A WAY THAT THERE FAMILY COULD COME.. AS LONG AS THE NIKAH WAS DONE THERE MARRIED ALHAMD. THE INTENTION BEHIND IT IS FINE BECAUSE SOMETIMES WE TRY TO NOT FEEL OR MAKE ISLAM AS A STRANGER.WE CAN ALSO SAY LOOK WERE PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU.AS LONG WE TRY TO STICK TO SOME GUIDE LINES EG. MUSIC DANCING WE ARE FINE. YES WE DO SIN IN TIMES LIKE THIS BUT WE MUST REPENT AT ALL TIMES AND BECOME BETTER MUSLIMS. YOU CAN SEE WHY AND WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE GENERATION OF MUSLIMS EG.. DATING FORNICATION HAVING CHILDREN FROM HARAM INTERCOURSE.ALL BECAUSE OF LACK OF SUNNI SCHOLARS AND ENVIRONMENT OF DEEN. SO BE GOOD AND KIND AND DON'T SHOW THERE EVIL PEOPLE.

    It basically is a Christian wedding ... Regardless of the priest etc ... also think for a second why are they saying 'I Do' .... Theyre already married if the Nikkah has taken place and all this stuff is pointless.

    I'm no scholar ... far from it but I wouldnt think it would be permissable to attend or carry out such a thing. Its important to protect the purity of our deen and Allah Knows Best.

    I personally wouldn't attend such a gathering. But it would be best to speak to an Imam or a Mufti as your circumstances may be different ... Allahu Alam.

    May Allah make it easy on you and guide you to the right path ... Ameen.

    • Help!My brother love a christian girl and now he become christian to marriage her!What i must do?

      • Attactos, what can you do? Nothing really, except advise him. Read to him Surat-al-Ikhlas.

        Human beings are free to make their own mistakes. That is the nature of life.
