Q: I’m a Muslim but my boyfriend is Hindu. He is going to convert to Islam and then we will get married. My question is that he wants to keep his culture the way it was so is it permissable for me to follow his ways e.g. he wants a Hindu wedding, so can I do that even though we are going to do nikaah.
Also I am willing to turn vegetarian because that’s what he was brought up to be so is that also permissible?
How can you ever think of sacrificing your deen and relationship with Allah Ta’ala for this kaafir. Immediately cut off all ties with him and seek Allah Ta’ala’s forgiveness. You should get married to a pious and upright believer who is compatible to you.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
