  2. Salam sister Parveen,

    No she is not but she's reading Quran and
    Follows the Islamic rules by eating only halal meet and
    She goes to juma prayers and she's trying to be
    A good Muslim. When I told my parents about her
    They got mad at me and said there is no way
    They will let me marry her.

  3. Asalamualaikum brother,

    A Muslim man can marry a woman from the people of the book "meaning, A Jewish or a Christian", and she can keep her religion and practice it freely.. She doesn't need to convert, unless she wanted to "by her own choice"

    But as you mentioned, she eats halal, read quaran and learning and follow in Islam way that is good. but I think to make your parents understand that decision is not wrong it's to teach her your culture or request her to convert just for the sake of your parents and your love and then you can present her in front of your parents then maybe they will understand.

    May I ask where is her parents? Did they agree with her choose did they accept you?

    Brother marriage is something it's like fragile so have to handle carefully and patient. Honestly if your efforts dosent work then if you obey your parents and believe that they raise me as a good Muslim man and I have no right to hurt them in their last age where I am responsible to tale of them the way yet did when I was little then have to scarifies my happiness. 

    Without parents blessing and love trust me you both won't have peaceful life. Which will be very very hard to bear in some-point.

    I will make dua for you brother, may Allah bless you and fulfill your wish and make your love halal through marriage and your parents accept her as their daughter.


  4. Sorry for my spelling mistake
    " to take care of them the way they did when I was little then have to scarifies"

  5. Right, but I am confused. Has she accepted Islam already? Just visiting the Masjid and eating Halaal does not make a Muslim. If she believes in Allah as The Only God Worthy of Worship and Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam is His Final Messenger, then insha Allah, she is a Muslim.

    She should accept Islam.
    Then, perhaps she can prove to your mother that she is a good Muslimah, your mother's opinion about her could change.

    There are hopes insha Allah. But brother, do not keep contact with her until you marry her if you do. Because, this may lead to major sins.

    I pray that Allah Helps you

  6. Asalaamualaikum,

    Muslims can marry the followers of the books (i.e. Christians, Jews and Sahbeans) on certain conditions.

    1. They should accept Islam.
    2. They should accept Islam with their hearts and not for name sake, meaning not to marry you.

    If the girl you like is accepting Islam for herself and not to marry you and she believes that "There is no God but Allah and Muhummad (SAW) is the messenger of Allah" then she is a muslim.

    Most parents do not let their children marry someone who is a reverted muslim because they feel insecure, they feel the society will not accept them or will talk about them.

    You should explain your parents what Allah says and that they should only care about Allah and not about society. Also, supplicate to Allah to open your parents heart and permit you marriage with her.

    And Allah knows best.


  7. It is not permissible for you to force your Christian wife – if you do marry her – to become Muslim. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

    “There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in Taaghoot [falsehood, false gods] and believes in Allaah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allaah is All-Hearer, All-Knower”

    [al-Baqarah 2:256] 

    Ibn Katheer said: 

    Allaah says: “There is no compulsion in religion” meaning: do not force anyone to enter Islam, for it is obvious and clear, and its proof and evidence are apparent. There is no need to force anyone to enter it, rather whomever Allaah guides to Islam and opens his heart to it and illuminates his insight will enter it with conviction; but whoever Allaah makes blind in his heart and seals his hearing and insight will not benefit from being compelled to enter the religion by force. They said that the reason for the revelation of this verse was concerning some people among the Ansaar, even though this ruling is general. 

    Tasfeer Ibn Katheer, 1/311 

    • That's right. But if she is doing deeds like that of a Muslim, I believe she has some interest in Islam. So, insha Allah she wouldn't require force.

      Muhammad Waseem
