I’ve got married to a qadiani boy 6 years ago. I knew that they are qadiani but I was not aware of their beliefs. After marriage they started taking me to their jamaat and started telling about their beliefs and their Khalifa whom they follow. I came to know about their beliefs recently and want to know if my marriage is valid with this qadiani boy or not.
My husband says that he is ready to accept Islam but he can’t leave his family/mother as she is very old. And she won’t accept Islam as she follows qadianism very strictly.
My husband is not at all religious, neither he fasts nor he offers his salah properly.
Please advice if converting him and living with his mother is permissible and better for my Deen and Akhirah.

In order for a person to be a Muslim there are certain conditions they need to fulfil in terms of belief. If a person claims to be a Christian but does not believe in Jesus , he will not be considered a Christian regardless of his claims. Similarly, every religion/cult/faith has basic beliefs which MUST be adhered to, if those beliefs are not adhered to, they are not considered to be from that religion/cult/faith. Islam has an agreed upon principle derived from the Quraan and Hadeeth that the Prophet Muhammad is the final Prophet and Messenger MUST be adhered to. Other beliefs like the Quraan being the seal of books and there is to be no more divine inspiration or any other source of law is also to be adhered to. Qadianis DO NOT follow any of these agreed upon principles therefore their claim to Islam is rejected. Coming to your question, it will be best if he accepts Islam immediately and you perform your nikaah with him. Your previous nikaah is not valid and it MUST be repeated AFTER he accepts Islam and denounces Qadianism. You may continue to live with his non muslim family if need be. Never say never in regards to his mother becoming Muslim, the Sahaabah used to joke before Umar became a Muslim that it was more likely for his donkey to accept Islam. Umar eventually became Muslim and the second Caliph. Make duaa for his family and inshaaAllah Allah will guide them.
