Pearl of Wisdom

when asked about who has the greatest misfortune, said, 'A man who abandons the world for the sake of the world, and therefore he misses out on the world and loses the Hereafter, and a man who worships, struggles and fasts as a display for others, and thus forbids [himself] the pleasures of this world and also tires himself. And were he to do all that sincerely [for the sake of Allah], he would be deserving of its reward.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 92, p. 251

Question : #658 Category: Marriage - Nikkah
Subject: Love and marriage
Question: I am 17 years old and im shia. I have known this sunni guy for a long time now and we recently became very close friends. He eventually told me that he has feelings for me and that he would like to marry me. Our relationship is very serious and we love eachother alot. We plan on getting married. He is everything i have ever wished for in a man and i know that i will not be able to marry somebody other than him. But the fact that he is sunni might lead to my parents not allowing me to marry him. I dont want to marry anybody other than him but i dont want to displease my parents either ...what should i do?
Answer: Salaam Sister,

The ruling behind the major Marjas of a Shia sister entering marriage with Ahl Sunnah brother is that if you have no fear on your religion that he might mislead you or force you to believe otherwise and if you have no fear on your children(s) faith then there is isn't a problem with the marriage.

You should seek to educate him on the path of Ahl ul Bayt and get him see our School of Thought and Inshallah this may have great effects for your parents acceptance.
