In devoting non-Muslims, the question is posed. Scholars are advocating rules which are in direct violation of God legislation in the Quran. Regrettably, and in man orientated civilizations we hear the promise that a Muslim man can marry a female of different religions (e.g. a Christian or Jewish girl). However, a Muslim woman can’t marry except a Muslim guy! They describe this male invention that is biased that is clear by quite a few justifications that are un-Quranic. Some state that this privilege is given to the man since the youngster takes the faith of his father and not his mother, and so a Muslim man may marry a no Muslim girl but have the kid raised as a Muslim woman, while like a Muslim girl married a Christian guy by way of instance, the child could be raised as a Christian.
However, is that what God decreed for the Marriage In Islam To Non Muslim from the Quran?
The answer is NO!
To detail God’s law in the Quran, we read the next:
“And do not marry polytheistic women until they believe. And a believing slave woman is better than a polytheist, even though she might please you. And do not marry polytheistic men [to your women] until they believe. And a believing slave is better than a polytheist, even though he might please you. Those invite [you] to the Fire, but Allah invites to Paradise and to forgiveness, by His permission. And He makes clear His verses to the people that perhaps they may remember.” (2:221)
The term ‘mushrikeen’ (mushrikaat for girls) speaks of people who perpetrate ‘shirk.’ The term ‘shirk’ is used consistently to mean the act of placing God on partner/s in some of God’s exclusive rights. As an Example, at 6:114 we see that God is the only source of legislation (hakaman), therefore anybody who upholds any supply of legislation besides God’s law (Quran) is guilty of ‘shirk’: ”
Or do they have ‘shurakaa’ (spouses) that legislate for them spiritual laws that were not approved by God? They’d have been judged if it weren’t for a choice. The transgressors will have a painful punishment.42:21
The 2nd term in 42:21 ‘shurakaa’ is an integral term, and it means spouses. In 12:106 we see the way the majority of people who believe in Allah (that comprises all Muslims) are committing ‘shirk.’ The majority of those that believe in Allah don’t do this without practicing ‘shirk’ (placing partners with Allah) 12:106
It becomes evident that the prohibition is connected to marrying anybody who practices ‘shirk.’ They could be Jews, both Christian, and Muslims. It also becomes obvious that Muslims may wed the followers of any faith (Jews, Christians, etc.) as long as they believe in the Oneness of God and also do not put up partners with God in any capacity.
It’s also obvious that the regulation of God forbidding marriage to the ‘mushrikeen’ applies to men and women alike. The invention of providing men preferential treatment in this matter is the result of dominated cultures.
The Quran makes the point that there are people among the Jews, Christians and many others that are a monotheist and don’t put up idols. That thing is confirmed by the verses:
People who think and those that are Jewish, the Christians and the Sabians, the individuals who believe in God and the Last Day and do great deeds; they have their reward from their Lord, and no anxiety will likely come upon them nor will they grieve.2:62
“And indeed, among the People of the Scripture are those who believe in Allah and what was revealed to you and what was revealed to them, [being] humbly submissive to Allah. They do not exchange the verses of Allah for a small price. Those will have their reward with their Lord. Indeed, Allah is swift in account.” 3:199
