Marriage - Advising a Non-Muslim Friend Married to a Muslim Lady
  • Question:

    One of my friends who is a non-Muslim has married a Muslim girl. He is a close friend of mine but we don’t discuss religion. What does Islam say about this? I know this is forbidden but should I stop seeing him now or carry on as normal because we don’t discuss religion but I do find it a little uncomfortable he has married a Muslim girl?

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    We advise that you continue to maintain relations with your friend. You should confide with him and talk about the issues that concern you. You may also want to have a reliable sister get in contact with your friend’s partner.

    In Islam, a Muslim woman can only marry a muslim man.

    In-sha Allah through your encouragement, good character and supplications, it may be possible that Allah guide your friend towards Islam.

    And Allah knows best.
