Questioner: A person asks, ‘A sister who beliefs she is knowledgeable about Islaam because she can recite the Qur’aan married a Christian with the aim of converting him to Islaam…’
Dr Sharof: Cuts in…Ah! We seek refuge with Allaah.
Questioner: The questioner said he boycotted the sister because of this act but her mother said it is blameworthy.
Dr Sharof: How is it blameworthy? For what reason?! Allaah does not make it permissible for the Muslim women to marry the non-Muslims even if the person is from the people of the book, a Jew or a Christian. It is not permissible. Something of this nature is very common in the Yoruba communities. You may see one Musili married to one Jacob or Solomon. We seek refuge with Allaah from the accursed Shaytoon. There are fathers who even celebrate with them on this evil act. This is absolutely unfortunate yet they still congratulate themselves; they drink alcohol in such unfortunate events. What do you expect to see in such gatherings? Muslim women must not marry the non-Muslims! Muslim women must not marry the non-Muslims!! From the ways of making such sister regret her actions is to boycott her. Don’t give her any attention (until she repents). That is it.
