Nimatullahi Order and Marriage

Recommended Posts

Same basic rules as for Islam.

 

Men can marry: Christian, Jew, Zoroastrian, basically anyone who holds a monotheistic belief.

 

Women can only marry Muslim men, regardless of thought - be they Sunni, Shi'ah, or Sufi.

 

The reason for the disparity is that men are seen as the spiritual leaders of a home (this is true in most religions I know of) - so if a Sufi woman marries a non-Sufi man, her and her children will be subject to having their faith compromised. There are rare cases in which a woman can marry a non-Sufi man, granted that he promises in the contract not to try to persuade the wife or their children away from their religion.

Your Most Imperial Majesty,

 

Have you ever seen/witnessed a Sufi woman marry a non-Sufi man? Has such a marriage ever occurred in your family as far as you know?
