Q: There is a sect in
This sect does not believe that Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the last Prophet. Rather, it believes in the prophecy of
Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadyany.
Therefore, the Pakistani government announced that this sect is not Muslim. Likewise, the Legal Juridical Court in
decreed a resolution to the effect of condemning the concerned sect for being non-Muslim.I would like to ask: 1.
Is it permissible for a Muslim man to marry a Qadyany woman?
(Part No. 18; Page No. 312) 2. If such a marriage has already taken place, what is the Shar`y (Islamic legal) ruling on it? 3. What is the Shar`y ruling on the child born of such a marriage? 4. What is the ruling on people who know that someone is a
but they attend his wedding or act as witnesses or Waliy (legally accountable person acting for a woman seeking marriage)?
It is impermissible for a Muslim man to marry a Qadyany woman because she is a Kafir (disbeliever) and is not even a Jewish or a Christian. It is worth mentioning that there are well-established justifications for judging the
Qadyanis as Kafirs (disbelievers).
If a Muslim man has already married a Qadyany woman, the contract of the marriage should be revoked by the Muslim ruler or whoever represents him.
The child of such a marriage has to be ascribed to their father for the father was ignorant of the ruling on such a marriage and thus the concerned marriage is a dubious one.
It is impermissible for whoever knows that the bride is a Qadyany to attend their wedding or to act as a Waliy or a witness for the contract of marriage. Rather, people should forbid such a marriage and enjoin others to act righteously for Allah (Exalted be He) says:
Help you one another in Al-Birr and At-Taqwâ (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression.
(Part No. 18; Page No. 313) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
