Can an Agnostic muslim marry a Muslim girl


Can an Agnostic muslim marry a Muslim girl and what is to be done to bring the person back to Islam


Assalamu Alaykum
Thank you for your Question

An agnostic is a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God.

And a Muslim agnostic will simply mean a person who follows islam probably Because s/he has been doing so since birth but doesn’t believe that something maybe known of the existence or nature of God.

I believe, in todays world, with the advancement and vast knowledge available, there hardly maybe a doubt left an-unanswered related to God. Especially Allah (az).
Philosophy, and more so Islamic philosophy, has solved many such issues that clears one’s doubts and questions.
I will humbly ask this person to start listening to lectures and read appropriate books to be able to help the self understand Allah (az) better and clear all queries s/he may have.

Now, to your question, If this person, is as an atheist, who Denies the existence of God, then a Muslim man or woman cannot marry such a person. But s/he is a believing person but has queries and doubts that are unanswered, then there is certainly a lot of material out there to help him/her understand better.

I will recommend lectures on Aqaid
By sheikh Mansour Leghaei and Sheikh Dr Shomali.

May Allah guide us all
