Muslim married Hindu woman
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Asslam O Alaikum, Dear burhaan, would plz explain me what does " Ahlan - wa - Sahlan " mean that is displayed in u r home page. My next question is that in one of u r answers regarding marriage, the wali of the bride and bridegroom should agree upon the relationship, then only the marriage is valid, but one of my close friend has got married to a girl who comes from Hindu family, and both the parents are disappointed for what they have done. The girl has embraced Islam. Plz let me know if their marriage is void and whether they should goto their parents for convincing them or just stay away as the anger from both the family still exist on these couple. Please reply. Wassalam

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your question: plz explain me what does " Ahlan - wa - Sahlan " mean.
Ahlan-wa-Sahlan is a colloquial Arabic term to say welcome! Literally translated it would mean You have come to a good and easy place, but is used in the Arabic idiom to simply mean welcome!
Your question: one of my close friend has got married to a girl who comes from Hindu family, and both the parents are disappointed for what they have done. The girl has embraced Islam.

If the girl has no wali or guardian, or if the girls wali are non-muslims and/or are against the marriage, the Islamic Qadi or Judge will be considered to be her wali. If the girl has accepted Islam before the marriage, the marriage is absolutely legal in the sight of Shariah; and all rights due to a muslim will be accorded to the girl.
In Islam, a marriage is not only a union between two individuals; but in a broader sense, it is a union between two families. And Islam teaches us that no matter what the circumstances, we always have to keep good relations with our parents, even if they do not believe in Allah and the Last Day! Thus, it is the duty of the couple to try and convince their parents to the best of their ability; be humble, kind and patient with them; and always be available for them whenever they might call on you. And whatever their position may be; it is the duty of the children to always be humble towards them, and constantly supplicate and pray to Allah Subhanah for their well being.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Bani Israel verses 23-24:Your Lord has enjoined the following: You should not worship anyone but Him Alone! Treat your parents with great kindness; if either or both of them attain old age, do not even say uff to them; nor rebuke them; but speak to them kind words. Treat them with humility and tenderness and pray, O our Lord, be merciful to them, just as they brought me up with kindness and affection in my childhood.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
