A Muslim Cannot Marry a Non-Muslim Unless he or she Believes
Dr Zakir Naik
In terms of special relationship where your deen is in danger. I’d like to give an example.
Allah says in the quran in surah al-baqarah chapter number 2 verse number 221.
That the believing man a muslim should not marry a mushrika an idolatress, an unbelieving woman, unless she believes.
A believing woman who is a slave woman is better than an unbelieving woman even if she allows you.
وَلاَ تَنكِحُواْ الْمُشْرِكَاتِ حَتَّى يُؤْمِنَّ وَلأَمَةٌ مُّؤْمِنَةٌ خَيْرٌ مِّن مُّشْرِكَةٍ وَلَوْ أَعْجَبَتْكُمْ وَلاَ تُنكِحُواْ الْمُشِرِكِينَ حَتَّى يُؤْمِنُواْ وَلَعَبْدٌ مُّؤْمِنٌ خَيْرٌ مِّن مُّشْرِكٍ وَلَوْ أَعْجَبَكُمْ أُوْلَـئِكَ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى النَّارِ وَاللّهُ يَدْعُوَ إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَالْمَغْفِرَةِ بِإِذْنِهِ وَيُبَيِّنُ آيَاتِهِ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ
Do not marry unbelieving women (idolaters), until they believe: A slave woman who believes is better than an unbelieving woman, even though she allures you. Nor marry (your girls) to unbelievers until they believe: A man slave who believes is better than an unbeliever, even though he allures 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.
Surah Al-Baqara Verse-221
That means a muslim man cannot marry a non-muslim woman. A woman who does idol worship buddha shirk, unless she believes.
Unless she becomes a muslim. Unless she becomes a momin, because a muslima, a momina.
A believing woman is far better than an unbelieving woman even if she allows you. Means in preference to marry a muslim woman even if she may Be a slave woman she may be a bond woman. She may be a very poor woman. She may be an ugly woman.
If she has faith, she is far superior then an unbelieving woman, even if she allows, you she may be the most beautiful woman in the world.
She may be the richest woman in the world. Yet a muslima a believing woman who’s poor and ugly is far superior, than unbelieving woman. And the same goes vice versa that a believing woman.
Should not marry an unbelieving man a mushrik man until he believes.
A believing man, even if he’s a slave man, he is far superior to a man who does shirk even he may allow you, he may be the most handsome man in the world. He may be the richest man in the world. He may be the king of the country.
But a believing man even if he’s poor, even if he’s ugly, he’s far better in marriage, than a mushrik man.
So here because the relationship is concerned that, if you marry a non-muslim, if you marry a mushrika or a mushrik, your deen is in danger.
That’s the reason it is prohibited for a muslim to marry a non-muslim, marry a mushrik.
Otherwise under normal circumstances in general dealing you have to be kind to them non-muslims.
