As-salamu aleykum, I am Aparna, 21, Hindu. My boyfriend is Muslim, 21. We were friends for the past 5 years. We have been in a relationship for six months. I am ready to convert to Islam. I already started accepting that " there is no other god but Allah, and Muhammed is His last Messenger", but his family is against it. So many times they have warned him. They have even come to my home to speak to my family and warn me, but we started convincing his family that we brokeup.
But we were caught when he gave me a gift with the quote "love u Appu". So this January they asked him to make a promise over Quran that he will never talk to me again. He tried to refuse, but his grandmother started saying that his whole family of grandparents, aunties, uncles and his parents will enter my home if he doesn't promise. My grandmother was recovering from a stroke, so we felt if they entered the home we would lose the life of my grandmother. Plus his grandmother fell on her feet to make him promise.
He had no other choice, so he made a promise over Quran in front of his family and our friends. Now he still loves me. Insha Allah, I definitely know he will marry me or will stay a bachelor forever. Same-I will also marry him or none. So is there any way he can talk to me again? It will break the promise. I know it is a very big sin. But I can't imagine a life without him. Please guide me. Can he break the promise?
