melissani. Yes, who call your brothers and sisters As salam or aleikum wa rahmatullah warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, meaning May the peace, mercy and blessings of Allah Subhana Allah be upon all of you. Welcome to our program, Islam insight, and exciting series with new Muslim Brothers over here, who are asking questions that they get after accepting Islam. And we're dealing with some of the most frequently asked questions and addressing their answers based on the authentic sources of Islam. So we may have the first question from you, Bella

00:01:53--> 00:01:55

Polycom, salam, ala, I'd like to know

00:01:57--> 00:02:00

that is performed before I accept Islam still valid.

00:02:03--> 00:02:11

before accepting Islam, the marriage that you have performed? Is it still valid after accepting Islam is your question.

00:02:12--> 00:03:16

This has various aspects of it are various case studies of it all cannot be standardized or generalized in one umbrella in one shade, it cannot be said whether it is yes or no let us analyze different scenarios, different situations, different case studies. For example, if if you are a Christian, and your wife is a Christian, and you have accepted Islam, then your marriage will continue. It will not be harmed, it will not be nullified, it will not be invalid, because your wife who is among the LA Kitab among the People of the Book, it is allowed to have the marriage with the people of the book, therefore, your marriage would continue. However, your utmost effort, your most

00:03:16--> 00:03:33

attempt, that she should also come into the fold of Islam. Because you do not want your own wife to be away from the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala you do not want your wife being

00:03:34--> 00:04:32

destined for Hellfire in an era because those who do not accept Islam, they are going to be among the losers, although your relationship will is valid, although your relationship will continue if she is only a Christian or a Jew. It will continue however, your attempt to keep her also as a part of this great religion. Islam should be your number one attempt. Why? Because Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Surah number 66 is number six, Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, you're Latina amanu or you believe Oh on forsaken, Alico, Nara, save yourself and your family from the hell fire. This is one aspect, but if it is a different aspect, like for example, a Christian sister who accepts Islam

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

and her husband

00:04:35--> 00:05:00

is a Christian, then her marriage, it becomes void, it becomes invalid. However, she has the time till she completes their ADA, the fixed period. During this this time she can do at most best she can do her best in order to convey and try to invite her husband

00:05:00--> 00:05:24

Ben, who's a Christian to Islam, if she acts if he accepts Islam, then this is well and good, both of them will continue their marriage in the same way, there will be no effect. But if he does not accept Islam, then she no longer is allowed to have the relationship with her husband. In the third case, where in

00:05:25--> 00:05:42

a person who became a Muslim who comes from any kind of idealistic background, being from Hinduism, or any other religious background, which is into either worshipping or paganism, if he accepts Islam and his

00:05:43--> 00:06:38

wife is again from the idealistic background, and she does not accept Islam, he cannot live with her anymore. After accepting Islam, he has to leave her before leaving, again, as an attempt as our trial as a struggle, as a responsibility. As a duty, you must share the message of Islam and try to explain, try to share, maybe Allah subhanaw taala can guide her as well so that you can continue your marriage in a happy way in a beautiful religion of Islam by fulfilling each other rights. So these are these are different scenarios in which marriage sometimes continues as it is, in certain cases, it becomes invalid hope that answers your question.
