Marry non muslim
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:i am in a pproblem .i need 2 know that is there ny ayah in quran related to love . u know what i mean
Dear and beloved brother, there are innumerable verses regarding the subject of love in the Glorious Quran.love for Allah, His Messenger (saws), Islam, for life, for parents, for relatives, love for the believing Ummah, love for mankind in general, love for the Hereafter, love for wealth, worldly possessions, etc.
But if your question is regarding the subject of the natural love between a husband and a wife, there are several verses of guidance on the subject:
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 30 Surah Rome verse 21:
21 And among His Signs is this that He created for you mates from among yourselves that ye may dwell in tranquillity with them and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts); verily in that are Signs for those who reflect.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imraan verses 14-17:
14 Fair-seeming in the eyes of men is the love of things they covet: women and sons; heaped-up hoards of gold and silver; horses branded (for blood and excellence); and (wealth of) cattle and well-tilled land. Such are the possessions of this world's life; but in nearness to Allah is the best of the goals (to return to).
15 Say: shall I give you glad tidings of things far better than those? For the righteous are gardens in nearness to their Lord with rivers flowing beneath; therein is their eternal home; with companions pure (and holy) and the good pleasure of Allah. For in Allah's sight are (all) His servants.
16 (Namely) those who say: "Our Lord! we have indeed believed: forgive us then our sins and save us from the agony of the fire."
17 Those who show patience firmness and self-control; who are true (in word and deed); who worship devoutly; who spend (in the way of Allah); and who pray for forgiveness in the early hours of the morning.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 25 Surah Furqan verses 72-76:
72 (The true believers are) Those who witness no falsehood, and if they pass by futility they pass by it with honorable (avoidance);
73 Those who when they are admonished with the Signs of their Lord droop not down at them as if they were deaf or blind:
74 And those who pray "Our Lord! Grant unto us wives and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous."
75 Those are the ones who will be rewarded with the highest place in heaven because of their patient constancy; therein shall they be met with salutations and peace
76 Dwelling therein; how beautiful an abode and place of rest!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 64 Surah Taghabun verses 14-15:
14 O ye who believe! Truly among your wives and your children are (some that are) enemies to yourselves: so beware of them! But if ye forgive and overlook and cover up (their faults) verily Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.
15 Your riches and your children may be but a trial: but in the Presence of Allah is the highest Reward.
Beloved brother in Islam, if you could specify which specific subject of love, we would try to the best of our ability to quote you the exact verses from the Glorious Quran on that subject, Insha Allah.
Your Question: what will be its punishment and is it acceptable to marry a woman other than muslim?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 5:
5 This day are (all) things good and pure made lawful unto you. The food of the People of the Book is lawful unto you and yours is lawful unto them. (Lawful unto you in marriage) are (not only) chaste women who are believers but chaste women among the People of the Book revealed before your time when ye give them their due dowers and desire chastity not lewdness nor secret intrigues. If anyone rejects faith fruitless is his work and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who are losers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 221:
221 Do not marry unbelieving women (idolaters) until they believe; a slave woman who believes is better than an unbelieving woman even though she allure you. Nor marry (your girls) to unbelievers until they believe: a man slave who believes is better than un unbeliever even though he allure you. Unbelievers do (but) beckon you to the fire. But Allah beckons by His grace to the Garden (of Bliss) and forgiveness and makes His Signs clear to mankind: that they may celebrate His praise.
Allah has permitted the believers to marry chaste non-mehram believing women, and chaste non-mehram women from amongst the Jews and the Christians; and it would be absolutely impermissible and forbidden for a believer who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day to marry any woman who is not a Muslim, nor a Jew, nor a Christian.unless of course the pagan woman accepts and professes belief in the Truth of Islam.
If a believer (Allah forbid) marries a woman who is not a Jew, or a Chrisitan, or a Muslim.then such a marriage will be absolutely null and void in the sight of Shariah and in the Sight of Allah Subhanah; their relationship will be one of zina, and the children resulting from that relationship will be unlawful. One who has professed belief and openly disobeys and transgresses such a clear boundary and Law of Allah Subhanah and chooses to marry an idolatrous women should prepare himself for a severe accounting for his decision when he ultimately meets with His Lord Most Majestic on that Tumultuous and Inevitable Day of Judgment!
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
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,
