Marriage - Intentions to Turn Spouse Towards Right Path
  • Question:


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    I have a marriage proposal from a family who has an alcohol business for years. I always wanted to marry a religious person, who earns from ḥalāl means. Can I marry him with an intention of bringing him on the right path? In shā Allāh I might be able to convince him to stop dealing in the alcohol business.

    Answer:

    May Allāh bless you with the best marriage partner. May you always experience happiness, faith and success in your family life.

    It is definitely permissible to marry a Muslim man. If such a person is involved in some illegal or impermissible business, you can encourage him to have pure and permissible dealings. It is advisable to discuss your expectations prior to the marriage.

    There are many individuals who have been positively influenced through a good marriage partner. Once again, we pray for your success.

    And Allah knows best.
