Marrying a non-Muslim for visa purposes

Q: Does Islam allow one to marry to non muslim or muslim girl just to seek visa settlement and make a deal with her and pay her for that. After getting the visa the matter is finished. The marriage is just in papers.


A: This is not in keeping with the dignity of a Muslim.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
