Is the Nikaah between a Sunni girl and a Shia boy halaal or not? The mother of boy is Sunni and the father is Shia. The same with their grand parents. They lived happily without interfering with each others maslak. They ask to do the Sunni nikaah and every thing according to our maslak. Please guide me with proper reference. The family of boy is not staunch. They don’t do matam but they do disrespect the Sahaba ikram.

A: Shiahs and Muslims are poles apart. They believe that the Qur’aan Shareef has been distorted. Similarly, they also believe that the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu anhum) had turned apostate, Allah forbid. The one who believes in this is obviously a kaafir. Hence, it is impermissible to marry such people.

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

عن أبي سعيد الخدري قال: قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: «لا تسبوا أصحابي فلو أن أحدكم أنفق مثل أحد ذهبا ما بلغ مد أحدهم ولا نصيفه» . متفق عليه (مشكاة #6007)

وفي الفتح عن الخلاصة: ومن أنكر خلافة الصديق أو عمر فهو كافر اهـ ولعل المراد إنكار استحقاقهما الخلافة، فهو مخالف لإجماع الصحابة لا إنكار وجودها لهما بحر. وينبغي تقييد الكفر بإنكار الخلافة بما إذا لم يكن عن شبهة كما مر عن شرح المنية، بخلاف إنكار صحبة الصديق تأمل (رد المحتار 1/561)
