Ask an Alim

Is it allowed for a women (ahle sunnah) to marry a man of Shia faith ?


is it allowed for a woman of sunni faith in islam to marry a shia man ?


Walikum salam

Thank you foryour question.

So the ruling is that a Shia boy or girl is allowed to marry a sunni BUT IF there is any fear of his/her beliefs being in danger, then the marriage is not permissible.

Also, a girl needs her father or paternal grandfathers permission to marry but a man doesn’t. However, I really insist you seek some counseling for yourselves

Good luck
