Slms. My sister married a Christian. He reverted to Islam about 9 years ago and they made nikah. Last year he told her that he wants to be a Christian again. We have tried but he is not interested in Islam. My sister is still a practising muslim – he allows it. They have a son who is Muslim and the father is allowing him to grow up as a Muslim. My sister refuses to leave him even though the nikah is now broken. Please guide us as a family – how do we treat my sister, the baby and the husband. Do we still keep relations with them even though they are living in sin. We already understand the Islamic consequences for my sister. all we want to know is what is the Islamic ruling if she stays with her husband even though he is Christian. How do we treat her and the son. Should they be a part of our family or do we disown them? I have asked this question on many sites and the responses that I get all revolve around the Islamic viewpoint on her situation with her husband which we are well aware of is wrong. What we want to know is how do we live with this situation from an Islamic viewpoint – she refuses to leave him and he refuses to revert. She is still our sister and she is still a practicing Muslim. The baby is also being brought up as Muslim. Her situation is haram and she knows it – she has to answer for it to Allah. What do we do as a family in terms of accepting this situation? Do we accept her and the child into our lives and not the husband?
