Aslamualaikum Mufti Sahab.
A friend of mines had a question about marrying a person who is shia willing to follow and raise children Sunni:
My question is that I want to marry this girl but she is Shia, if the girl is willing to marry me, raise our family and follow the Sunni way as my parents want is it gunna or forbidden to marry a Shia if they do not convert? Her parents would accept me as a Sunni they just would not want her daughter to convert but she will follow the Sunni way and also raise our chidlren sunni.. Please keep in mind we have not talked to our parents about this situation yet and please give me some guidance as I do not want to go against anyone’s parents.. The only thing we have done so far is complete the isthikara which came out good alhumdulillah.
I did Istikhara for 7 days:
Istikhara: first night dream: He saw in his dream he was taking a picture of the girl and his family together like a group photo.
On the fifth night he did istikhara he had a dream where he saw lots of trees and her in a white shalwr kameez coming to his house accompanied by her little brother.
is it gunna or forbidden to marry a Shia if they do not convert?
