I am a Muslim girl had an affair with a Hindu boy and planned for marriage. For that we prepared affidavit for Aryan Samaj Marriage, one for conversion of religion from my side other two for our commitment for each other as formality for Aryan Samaj Marriage. I have not gone Mandir for conversion rituals. But I have not preceded this because of my father death and decided to marry the person whom my father chose for me. After marriage my husband came to known my past and he want to give my talaq and says you are Hindu. Our nikah is not lawful. Please solve my problem whether my nikah is lawful or not. If my nikah is lawful how I will convince my husband?

(Fatwa: 1341/1058/D=11/1434)

(1) Changing the religion and signing on the affidavit for the marriage is diversion from Islam which is severe crime and major sin. It is necessary for you to do taubah and renew your Iman (faith). So if you were repented your previous practice and did taubah and read Kalimah Tayyibah wholeheartedly then your nikah was valid with the Muslim person as per the Shariah. It is lawful for you to maintain the marital relation with him.
(2) It is not correct for your husband to call you a Hindu on the basis of your past. It is also very bad to call any Muslim a Hindu. He should do taubah and should avoid saying such words. However for his further satisfaction he can ask you for the renewal of your Iman i.e. you should read the Kalimah Tayyibah and Kalimah Shahadah with full belief that Allah is One, and the holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His messenger, and you should believe on the day of judgment and then solemnize your nikah again i.e. perform your nikah in the presence of two Muslim witnesses. Thenceforth both of you should start living your life as per the Islamic teachings.
