Jazakillahu khairan for posting Ahlam. This article is by Sr. Shahina Siddiqui from Winnipeg. I came across it a couple of days ago while I was searching for something else, interestingly enough : )

Assaamaulaikum everyone
Can anyone explain to me clearly what Islam says about interfaith marriages, namely between a muslim woman and a christian man....Ive read some articles which are quite shocking actually because as far as I know Surah 5:5 refers to marriages between muslim men and Kitaabi women only and marriages between Kitaabi men and mslim women are not allowed.

It is absolutely not permissible under any circumstances in Islamic law (shari'a) of Allah, the most esteemed and exhalted, for a non-Muslim to marry a Muslim woman, as per what He has said regarding the marriage of a kafir (unbeliever) to a Muslim woman and vice versa: (interpretation of the meaning).

They are not lawful (wives) for the unbelievers, nor are the unbelievers lawful (husbands) for them... (Al-Mumtahina:10)

And Allah the most esteemed and exhalted has also said (interpretation of the meaning):

Nor marry (your girls) to unbelievers until they believe... (Al-Baqara:221)

i.e., it is not ever permissable for someone to marry his Muslim daughter or sister or any Muslim woman for whom he is a guardian to a kafir.

Islam must be exhalted and cannot be subjugated, so how could a Muslim woman be put under the care of a kafir man, when the man is normally naturally in a stronger position? In such a situation he could cause her to corrupt the practice of her religion or force her into subdual by causing her to live a life of oppression with him. He could also prevent her from practicing some of her religious rites. These are among the reasons for the aforementioned ban expressed in the previous ayaat. wallahu a'lam

Assalamualaikum everyone,
To a non-muslim, the marriage of a muslim man to a Christian/Jewish woman might seem hypocritical when a muslim woman is not allowed to marry a kitaabi man. How can we explain this?

It is regrettable indeed that anyone would fail to adhere to the religion which Allaah has commanded us to adhere to.



Allaah, Who has forbidden believing women to do such things in the Qur’an (interpretation of the meaning): “… they should be chaste, not adulterous, nor taking boyfriends…” [al-Nisaa’ 4:25].



It is not permitted for a Muslim man to marry a mushrik woman, or for a Muslim woman to marry a mushrik man. There are no exceptions to this except for marriage to women of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians), if they are chaste. This is what is indicated by the evidence of the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and this is what the ummah is unanimously agreed upon. It is not permissible for us to oppose the ruling of Allaah with our reasoning. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allaah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allaah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed into a plain error”

[al-Ahzaab 33:36]



It is known that the man is the stronger party and the one who dominates the lives of the family, his wife and children. So it is not wise for a Muslim woman to marry a kaafir man who will dominate her life and the life of her children, the consequences of which will be very serious, as there is the possibility that he may divert her from her religion and raise the children in his own religion.

And Allaah knows best.
