Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

Salam, I was recently divorced and I have 3 children Alhumdulilah. I have met a man who I am mentally and physically attracted to. Unfortunately he's not Muslim however he respects my religion & beliefs, although he's not Muslim he believes in God but has no religion (Allah knows best) its a shame he's not Muslim as he is very spiritual, humble & has most qualities of a Muslim man (Allah knows best) I would like to know under what circumstances would an Imam marry us Islamicaly without him converting to islam???

i've been told my answers are misleading, so i'll make this a comment.

NO. i've never heard of a single school of islamic jurisprudence or even a scholar who would say it is alright. there's a whole thing about the man dominating the marriage and the kids need to be muslim and christians and jews dont respect muhammad but islam respects jesus and moses. (sadie i think i read that here, was that a good answer? you didn't delete it) thusly muslim men can marry "people of the book". jews and christians. then there is some debate about zorostians?

No, both men and women are commanded to marry Muslims of opposite sex It is totally haraam. Marry only another Muslim or there will be trouble in your life.

Abdul your answer suffices. Insha Allah your answers could always pertain to Islam. Salam

sorry sadie, your too late. i just made a comment about sinkholes and it had nothing to do with islam. so how do you like my nom de plume. chris jackson was probably before your time?

As far as my knowledge he has to be Muslim. Salam

if he's "very spiritual", he should ask about islam, and try to teach him about islam, and how he believe in god, and don't believe in any religions of ellah ??!! and an imam can not marry you unless he convert to islam , and as a muslim women you can't marry your self :) salam

Allah says in Quran 2:221

And do not marry polytheistic women until they believe. And a believing slave woman is better than a polytheist, even though she might please you. And do not marry polytheistic men [to your women] until they believe. And a believing slave is better than a polytheist, even though he might please you. Those invite [you] to the Fire, but Allah invites to Paradise and to forgiveness, by His permission. And He makes clear His verses to the people that perhaps they may remember.

IN prophet Muhammad s.a.w time there is no train buses planes they use to travel from camels for war or other purposes it takes lot of time to reach destinations and Islam is not reached fully so that why its allowed men to Marry Jewish and christian girl . it is not permissible for a Muslim men or women to marry non Muslims either Jew or christian . only Muslim Men in case if he didn't find a Muslim women then he can marry christian or Jewish girl which is very rare these days . it is recommended/order of Allah for to marry a Muslim.

As far as Muslim women is concerned men is always dominant in case of power and strength, and can dominant ,he might harm u or make ur children a non Muslim and every non Muslim is in hell fire do u love 2 see ur kids and husband hell fire. see quran 2:221 and by a marrying a non muslim u r putting yourself in a great trouble your iman is in danger and when iman(belief) goes hell-fire is the destination . Ash him 2 be Muslim then u can marry him

What do you mean by he believes in God but has no religion? try your best to make him convert to islam.....pray to Allah to give him guidance...Insha Allah....

Any marriage between a muslaim and a disbeliever is Haraam and forbidden in islam....

Hope you make a good choice sister ......Insha Allah
