Marrying a Hindu

Q: I loved a girl since one year and she also loves me but the problem is that she is of Hindu religion and I want to make nikaah to her. Can I do so without the interference of her parents?


A: The Qur’an has prohibited marrying idol worshippers. Hence it is haraam for you to marry a Hindu. The nikaah will not be valid and one will perpetually be living in zina.

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