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:
this is the question i asked last time:
thanks for replying for my last question. If u remember last time i hav sent a question whether i can marry an athiest as he has promised to convert after marriage. i have sent your answer to him, and now he says dat he is ready to convert before marriage.
1.)Now If we get married, he wants to stay with his parents along with me. but wot i heard was that, v shud`nt eat food made by non-muslims. but if we stay with his parents, then definetly we have to eat the same food. So, what should we do in such case?
Beloved Sister, if you could kindly clarify the deen of the parents of the brother in whose house you wish to live and the whether or not the country they reside in is a muslim or non-muslim nation, we would be better able to guide you regarding the permissibility of the food.
n dis is wot u asked:

Eat Christian food
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.
Dear and beloved Sister, as long as you are absolutely and totally convinced that the man you wish to marry has reverted to Islam for the Sake of Allah and not just to fulfill the legal Shariah requirements for marrying a believing woman..it would be lawful in letter and in spirit of Shariah Law for a believing woman to marry this brother.
But if you know or conspire with the non-muslim brother who wishes to marry you to simply declare the Shahaadah or testimony of faith in order to become a legal muslim in the sight of law.then know with absolute conviction that although such a marriage would be legal in the letter of the law and recognized as lawful by the believers in the life of this world..such a blatant conspiracy would be against the very spirit of the Shariah.and all those who knowingly conspired to make a mockery of the Laws of Allah Subhanah will be held severely accountable in His Just and Supreme Court on an Inevitable and Tumultuous Day.
As your brothers and sincere well-wishers in faith, our humble advice for your own good in this world and the hereafter is to make absolutely sure that the non-muslim brother who wishes to marry you has truly accepted Islam for the sake of Allah Subhanah and not just to fulfill the legal requirements of marrying a believing woman.
Your Question: So, with this, do u think i can stay with his family???
Dear and beloved sister in Islam, there is absolutely no harm or restriction in Islam if a believing sister who has married a revert wishes to live with his family, regardless of the beliefs of the family of the revert husband.
Provided the food that is served in the house of the disbelieving family of the revert brother is halaal in its essence, there is absolutely no harm in consuming such food. Because India has a vast muslim population and meat slaughtered by muslims is widely available in India, there is absolutely no harm in consuming such lawful food cooked in the house of your disbelieving in-laws, provided the food that is being consumed is halaal in its essence (that the flesh is not of swine, that the meat is lawfully slaughtered, etc.).
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
