Assalamu alaikum,

I'am new to this community. Sorry for this personal question. I fell love with non muslim woman. After I convincing her and told about Islam and it's beautiful she ready to convert into islam. But she afraid of society. She doesn't want to know about her conversion to islam for a while. Due to society. Is it necessary to explicitly announcing her conversion? or Does she can be a good muslim without telling them to anyone?

Please give me your opinion.

  • You mean to say she doesn't want her family in friends to know about her conversion... and for how long she expects to keep it hidden? – Sassir Nov 10 at 21:38
  • @Sassir - Thanks for the comment. Yeah she doesn't want to know about for a short period, until things get set. Roughly 1 to 2 years.. – Mohamed Thasin ah Nov 11 at 4:26

    I don't know why nobody considered answering this :S but if you want to marry her you must clarify about her situation: Is she a Muslim by now or will she be a Muslim at the time of marriage or later? As the rulings of marriage play also a role. as to your title question it is answerable and I'd say the Qur'an already offers answers. – Medi1Saif 2 days ago

  • Lets say that the "belief and choice" of the guardian for her marriage actually depends on the girls belief: A Christian needs a Christian Guradian (Father in first place), a convert needs a Muslim guardian if her guardian is non-Muslim she may choose a trustworthy Muslim for this task. A girl who is neither Muslim nor considered from among the people of the book can't get married to a Muslim. – Medi1Saif yesterday

It is not paramount for a new Muslim to announce it publicaly. She can decide to announce it when her situation become comfortable for her. She can be a good practicing Muslim without telling to her parents regarding her accepting Islam bcos Allah clearly mentioned in Holy Book QURAN that only those Muslim are nearer to ALLAH who is pious and having good deeds.It is also good appourtunity for you that you can be able to get Sawab (reward from ALLAH) by converting a non Muslim under umbrella of great religion ISLAM and guide her the true path of ALLAH ALMIGHTY. ..
