Some Marriage Conditions That Must Not Exist
The Noble Qur'an 24:3
The adulterer marries not but an adulteress or a Mushrikah and the
adulteress none marries her except an adulterer or a Muskrik [and that means
that the man who agrees to marry (have a sexual relation with) a Mushrikah
(female polytheist, pagan or idolatress) or a prostitute, then surely he is
either an adulterer, or a Mushrik (polytheist, pagan or idolater, etc.) And
the woman who agrees to marry (have a sexual relation with) a Mushrik
(polytheist, pagan or idolater) or an adulterer, then she is either a
prostitute or a Mushrikah (female polytheist, pagan, or idolatress, etc.)].
Such a thing is forbidden to the believers (of Islâmic Monotheism).
The Noble Qur'an 5:5
(Lawful to you in marriage) are chaste women from the believers and chaste
women from those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) before
your time, when you have given their due Mahr (bridal money given by the
husband to his wife at the time of marriage), desiring chastity (i.e. taking
them in legal wedlock) not committing illegal sexual intercourse, nor taking
them as girl-friends.
The Noble Qur'an Al-Mumtahinah 60:10
O you who believe! When believing women come to you as emigrants, examine
them, Allâh knows best as to their Faith, then if you ascertain that they
are true believers, send them not back to the disbelievers, they are not
lawful (wives) for the disbelievers nor are the disbelievers lawful
(husbands) for them. But give the disbelievers that (amount of money) which
they have spent [as their Mahr] to them. And there will be no sin on you to
marry them if you have paid their Mahr to them. Likewise hold not the
disbelieving women as wives, and ask for (the return of) that which you have
spent (as Mahr) and let them (the disbelievers, etc.) ask back for that
which they have spent. That is the Judgement of Allâh. He judges between
you. And Allâh is All-Knowing, All-Wise.

Yahya related to me from Malik from Abu'z-Zubayr al-Makki that a case was
brought to Umar about a marriage which had only been witnessed by one man
and one woman . He said, "This is a secret marriage and I do not permit it.
Had I been the first to come upon it, I would have ordered them to be
Hadith - Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 48, Number 813, Narrated Ibn 'Abbas
The Prophet said about Hamza's daughter, "I am not legally permitted to
marry her, as [Islamic] foster relations are treated like blood relations
(in marital affairs). She is the daughter of my foster brother."
