Marrying a Non-Muslim Woman

Question: A Muslim intends marrying a Hindu woman in an Aryan Simaj temple. Can one attend such a wedding?

Answer: It is Haraam to marry a non-Muslim woman (whether, Kaafir or Mushrik) since this is a major sin A verse of Surah Baqara states. "Do not Marry mushrik women until they accept Imaan." It is therefore not even permissible to attend such a marriage. In fact, regarding such a marriage to be permissible is an act of Kutr and it would be necessary for a person with this belief to renew his Imaan And Allaah knows best what is most correct.
