Permissibility of converting just to marryCategory: QuestionsPermissibility of converting just to marry
Mark Woloszyn asked 4 years ago

Is it permissible for a non-Muslim, non-Jew, non-Christian to convert to Islam just for the sake of marrying me, a Shia Muslim? Can she just say “la illaha il Allah, Muhammadur Rasul Allah” and become my wife through a mutah or permanent marriage?  I don’t think she would want to practice much Islam.  But it could be a form of dawah though.  I am struggling to control my desires and want to do something ‘halal’ about it.
