Marriage to Non-Muslim Women | Quranic View

Status of previous marriage of non-Muslim women when non-Muslim Women married with Muslim

The husband either embraces Islam within the period of Iddat, in which case the marriage continues, or he remains a non-Muslim even after expiry of Iddat Period, in which case the marriage would stand dissolved. The Iddat is imposed in order to provide opportunity to the non-Muslim husband to consider whether he wishes to embrace Islam and also as a matter of public policy in order to ascertain whether the woman is pregnant by earlier husband so as to avoid confusion of parentage.
