Marriage to hindu unlawful
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Q-1: Whether marriage is valid?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 221:
221 Do not marry idolatrous women until they believe; a slave woman who believes is better than an idolatrous woman, even though she allures you. Nor marry (your girls) to disbelievers until they believe: a man slave who believes is better than a disbeliever even though he allures you. Disbelievers 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.
A marriage between a believing woman and a disbelieving man is categorically forbidden, unlawful, haraam, null, and void in the Sight of Shariah Law and in the Sight of Allah Subhanah. Such an abomination of a marriage has absolutely no legal status in Islam!
Q-2: Should i ask her to break?
If indeed you are a friend and a sincere well-wisher of the sister, and fear for her well-being in this life and especially her eternal life of the Hereafter.. it would be your duty to inform her clearly and without any inhibitions regarding the abomination and the gravity of her sin and her transgression in the Sight of her Lord!
Q-3: Should i continue be friend of her?
If after your very best efforts to warn her regarding her heinous and blatant transgressions of the Prescribed Boundaries of Allah, your friend insists on maintaining her transgressions, it would indeed be best that you distance yourself from such an impious evil-doer who neither fears her Lord Creator nor the Last Day.
Q-4: Can i have food made by her?
Provided that the food served by her is halaal and lawful in its essence, it would be lawful for you to consume the food made by her.
Q-5: If they give birth to a child ?
The child born of such an union will be considered illegitimate and born out of wedlock in the Sight of Shariah Law, in the Sight of Allah Subhanah, and in the sight of the believers.
Q-6: Her ibbadat will be appreciated by allah?
If your friend realizes the gravity of her transgression, turns back to her Lord in taubah, seeks sincere repentance for her past sins and subsequently amends her conduct.it is expected that she will find her Lord Merciful and Forgiving.
But if she continues to blatantly challenge the Laws and Prescribed Boundaries of her Lord, the case of her virtues and her sins are in the Blessed Hands of her Lord Creator Alone.if He Wills He may forgive her, and if He Wills He may extract full retribution from her for her manifest transgressions.
Q-7: What should i do? Dont I stop interfring her personal life?
Respected sister in Islam, as long as you genuinely have hope that your friend might realize her error and turn unto her Lord in repentance, you are well within your rights to warn her to fear her Lord Creator and His Tumultuous Day of Accountingbut if after your very best efforts she gives you absolutely no hope of her returning back to the obedience of the Laws of her Creator, it would only be prudent that you leave her to account for her own misdeeds. But as long as you are able to hold some hope in your heart of hearts that your friend might one day turn unto her Lord in sincere repentance, it would be your duty as a friend and a genuine well-wisher that you try to save your friend from the impending and unbearable Wrath and Anger of the Lord Most Majestic Who Created.
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,
