Muslim Women Marrying a Christian Man? Will she inherit from her Muslim father””s Estate?

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

A Muslim Woman marries a Christian Man. Her Muslim Father has now died. Will she inherit from her father’s Estate?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,
I pray this finds you in the best of health and spirits.
While marriage to a non-Muslim man is not permissible for a Muslim woman–by clear Qur’anic texts, as explained in related SunniPath Answers ( — this does not take one out of the fold of Islam. Thus, such a Muslim woman would have the full right to inherit from her Muslim father.
And Allah alone gives success.
