The petition seeks leave to appeal against an order of the Peshawar High Court dismissing the matter.

Maulvi Saeed A Jalapuri’s edict in the daily Jang

Marriage with an apostate and heretic

Salma Nasim, Rawalpindi

Question:         Can a Muslim marry an Ahmadi or Qadiani? Does Islam permit such marriage, or not? Apparently, they have the same creed, and they recite the Quran and offer the Islamic daily prayers. Also is it permissible to marry the People of the Book?

Answer:           Marriage of a Muslim with a Qadiani is not allowed (najaiz) and is strictly forbidden (haraam). As Qadianis are apostates and heretics, it is strictly forbidden to make matrimonial arrangements with them. Qadianis themselves believe so. (false – ed.). According to Sharia, if Islamic law prevailed in the land, such apostates or those who claim their un-Islamic beliefs to be Islamic, would be arrested and given three days, in which effort would be made to make them understand and clear their doubts and offered to recant, so if they again became Muslims, so much the better, otherwise the penalty of apostasy (death) would be imposed upon them and the earth would be cleansed of their poisonous effects. So, intermarriage with such people, whose very life is not tolerated by Islam, will be permitted? As for Qadianis having the same creed, the Quran and the Prayers – it is merely their show, otherwise they deny the person of the Holy Prophet, the Quran and the Sharia, and to them is sufficient the Tazkara, the compendium of home-made revelations of their false prophet, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani. And their audacity, they present their un-Islamic beliefs as the true Islam. Anyone who calls his un-Islamic beliefs as Islam, is a heretic (zindiq). According to the Ulema, even the apology of a zindiq is not acceptable.

It is permissible to marry a woman of the People of the Book, the Jews and Christians; however a Muslim woman is not allowed to marry a Jew or a Christian. The Ulema have laid down a number of conditionalities to allow marriage with a Christian or Jewish girl, for example, she must be a genuine Ahle Kitab and not an atheist; there should be no risk for the Muslim husband to lose his faith or change his beliefs; there should be no risk of the children turning Christians or Jews; only then marriage with such a woman is permitted. However, the Quran has preferred marrying a Muslim woman over such a marriage.     (emphasis provided)

  • Each people, nation, and religion must live with each other, and do no harm to each other. Today, truly, we are our ‘brother’s keeper’.
  • Extremism creates a fertile recruiting ground for terrorism.
  • I have strongly advocated reform, social and economic progress and rejection of extremism in Islamic societies.
  • Domestically, religious bigotry, hate campaigns and confrontational tendencies have to be curbed. This has to be done through bold, determined, well thought out and indigenously applicable strategies. Intimate cooperation and coordination of intelligence and squeezing the underworld funding of terrorists and extremists organizations will facilitate counter terrorism operations to a large degree.
