Marrying a Shia

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Can a Sunni girl marry a Shi’a boy? He does not believe that Ali (radhiyallahu anhu) was the next prophet nor does he place more importance to him, they believe in Allah and that Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) is the last messenger. They also follow the same Qur’an and have respect for all the other companions and family of the Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).


A: It is not permissible.

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