Marriage - Between a Muslim Woman and Christian Man
  • Question:

    Can a Muslim woman marry a Christian man and vice versa? Or can a Muslim woman marry "ahl-e-kitab", believers of the divine revelation other than Quran such as Torah, Zabur?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    A Muslim woman wishing to abide by the Qur’an will not marry but a Musim man.

    Allah Almighty states in the Qur’an,

    “And give not (your daughters) in marriage to disbelievers till they believe (in Allah alone) and verily, a believing slave is better than a disbelieving man, even though he pleases you.” (Quran 2:221)

    And Allah knows best.
