I was told that, provided I tried not to hurt my parents, it would be in order for me to marry a muslimah who recently forsook Hinduism for Islam. To soften my parents’ hearts, would you please provide me with hadith which illustrates our beloved Prophet’s views on such matters.

Allah tells us in the Holy Qur’an:

And Allah invites [you] to the abode of peace; and guides whomsoever He wills to the
Right Path.
Qur’an 10:25

As our beloved Prophet (PBUH) made clear on many occasions, Islam disapproves of all racial and sectarian discrimination. He also said that: ‘Guiding a soul to the right path yields greater benefit than even significant wealth can command.’
Our Imams w ordered us to invite people to the way of the Qur’an and Islam. There is undoubtedly reward – thawab – in having played a part in bringing the muslimah to whom you refer out of darkness and into light. Being born of a Hindu family is irrelevant now that she is ready to accept the principles of the faith – din.

Your behaviour and correct understanding of Islamic manners – adab – is very important in convincing those around you to embrace true Islam. If the conditions are met you may decide on marriage.
