Marrying a Hindu girl

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Marrying a Hindu girl


You can marry her after she converts to Islam, but not before.

Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) says:

“And do not marry idolatresses till they believe. And indeed a slave woman who believes is better than a free idolatress, even though she pleases you…” (Surah Baqarah v.221)
