The Marriages of the Kuffâr

Beliefs & Practices, Part 4-Nikah (Marriage) in Islam / Monday, April 12th, 2010

1. The different forms of marriage in the different religions are recognized in the Sharî‘ah . If both, husband and wife, accept Islam, there is no need to repeat their nikâh . The nikâh that they had performed as kuffâr will still be valid.

2. If the husband or the wife accepts Islam and the other partner does not accept, their nikâh will be annulled. It will not be permissible for them to live as husband and wife.

3. If the wife accepts Islam and not the husband, then as long as the wife does not complete three hayd periods, it will not be permissible for her to marry another person.
