Islamic marriage advice and family advice

Muslim guy want to marry a Christian but parents won’t allow

love mercy marry wife husband

Assalam walekum

I am an Indian Muslim guy who wants to marry a foreigner Christian girl. She is ready to follow Islam and our children will follow Islam too. But my parents don't want me to marry her. They think that she can not follow Islam properly and we will face problems later.

Please tell me what I can do.

thank you.

    Your choices would seem to be:

    - Keep trying to convince your parents - try to find out what their grounds for disapproving are, and if possible ask a local imam or respected member of the community to reassure them (eg. if they are concerned about her faith, it might help them to hear some positive accounts of reverts from someone they respect).

    - Marry this girl despite their objections - Islamically, it is permitted to marry a revert from any background, or a practising Christian or Jewish woman.

    - Agree to your parents' wishes and don't marry her.

    Whatever you decide, make sure you are observing appropriate limits in your interactions with this girl. You may wish to pray istikhara before making a decision - you can read the articles on this website for more information about this.
