I am mureed of Sheikh Nazim al haqqani, and wish to know, whether as a Sunni boy is it permissible to marry a shia girl. We are both studying at the moment and are very interested in each other. My concern would be the reaction of both of our parents. If some guidance could be given, it would be much appreciated.
The answer in general is “yes.” In some countries such as Iraq, this is very common. The Twelve Imam Shiah (Ja’faries) represent the majority of Shiah and have some differences with Sunnis, but as long as they don’t curse Sahabah or pronounce Sunnis as unbelievers, you can marry their girl.
