A Sikh girl who has converted to Islam

Hi I’m muslim man marrying a Sikh girl who has converted to Islam. She didn’t change name. But on the wedding card she wants her name to have Kaur in there. But it’s not accepted by my parents. Even her surname which is obvious that its not a muslim name is not accepted by my parents. So it’s only her first name. She doesn’t like this at all and won’t accept this as its her given name. Pls help what to do. -G
If she is muslim then what is the problem in marriage. Name has not much significance, be it Khan, be it Kaur. If she likes her name..keep it as she want. -Amir.
Dear G, you are starting your marriage life on a wrong foundation. She has not converted to Islam, she has only “fake”-converted to Islam without realizing what Islam is all about. If she has converted to be a true Muslim, she would not be fighting for her name. Ask her to read (this) and [that] and Hindu Girl articles to make her realize reality of life.
Further, it is possible that she may have different expectations from you, like you will take your Muslim children to Gurudwara and be part of Sikh religious celebrations while at her parents home. We don’t think she is a “pure” Muslim yet and is ready to give up her Sikh faith easily. You should read the Muslim boy article.
In this days and age of high divorce rates, we highly recommend you do not rush into marriage but take time to think through all issues of interfaith marriage life. May be you should ask her to spend 6 months at a madrasa to be a real Muslim. She may have “fake” converted, but now you have to do good work making her an “obidient” true Muslim girl before you marry her. If not, you have deeper troubles on your way.
We have many good consultants and they will share their views soon. Best wishes. -Admin.
Readers, should smart Muslim parents make sure if she is a Muslim or Sikh? If a Sikh has fake-converted to Islam just for marriage, how they will know? If this is a fake-conversion, will it brings more problems in their Muslim married life?
