I am a Muslim guy wanting to marry a Christian girl, I have been informed that it is permissible to marry a Christian or Jew, however the Imaam at my local Musjid has informed my dad that I should rather force her to convert which I don’t believe I should do.

I do not need someone to do the South African Marriage registration as I can arrange this, all I need is for someone to do the Nikkah for us.

Please can you assist me or if not, then could you advise me on who would be able to assist me?



Muhtaram / Muhtaramah,

As salaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

Kindly reconsider your decision. Do not be hasty. The scholars of Islam do not advocate such marriages. There are many disadvantages in such marriages which you cannot understand currently due to your overwhelming inclination to this Christian girl. Such marriages are a challenge to your Deen and will certainly be detrimental to the Deen of your offspring. Marry a Muslim girl of piety and chastity and earn the blessing of your parents or at least follow the advice of your local Imaam.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
