Islamic marriage advice and family advice

Separated for 3 years, can I marry a Muslim man now?

islam nikah

Assalam malikhoum,
I recently embraced islam for about 2 years, and living in U.A.E for almost 3 years and legally married in Frankfurt Germany. Since I am separated from a Christian man for almost 3 years, am I entitled to get married if only ALLAH will allow me to meet the right man?

  1. of course sister, you can marry the right muslim man. may allah bless you and guide you to the right path.

  2. As Salamualaikum sister,

    First of all, I congratulate you for your Islam.

    Secondly, when a woman accepts Islam, her husband from her previous faith is given a three month time to think over the decision to accept Islam or not. If he accepts Islam, he has more right over the woman than any other Muslim man. But if he chooses not to accept Islam, then the woman is no more considered to be his wife.

    In your case, 3 years have passed. And if you haven't spoken to your husband about his reversion to Islam, I suggest you to speak to him once. Though I don't think it is mandatory, as 3 months have passed long ago.

    You can otherwise marry any other Muslim man. And Allah Knows Best
