My son wants to marry a Shia girl as he is in love with her. I am worried and concerned about my son’s future regarding Deen. Can he marry her and what is the Sharia ruling about this marriage is it permissible to marry Shia?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātu
Present day Shias follow the Jafari School of thought whose views are inconsistent with the views of the Ahlul Sunnah Wal Jama’ah. It is not permissible for your son to marry a Shia girl. If he does so, he will be putting his Imaan in danger.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
