f:415 -    Questions about marriage of Sunni and Qadiani
Country : India,
Name : Withheld
Question:     If either the husband or the wife is Qadiani, then to which religion will the children belong? Will the children be considered as the children of their own father? Does this raise the matter of ?Kufu??
Answer:     If someone has been a Qadiani before marriage then the marriage itself is not valid and as such, the couple are not husband and wife and should immediately separate.  As given in Durre Mukhtaar and Kanz Ud Daqaaiq.  

If they were Muslims before marriage and after marriage, either of them became a Qadiani, then immediately the marriage is dissolved.  As given in Durre Mukhtaar.  

The children will be considered to be Muslims after the parent who is a Muslim.  As given in Radd Ul Muhtaar.  

If either of the parents becomes Qadiani, then their parentage is not nullified and the children will be considered to be their children only.  There are many examples in the era of the Companions that in spite of their fathers still being non-Muslim, their parentage was not negated.  

If a Muslim girl herself marries the Muslim children of this couple, then the issue of “Kufu” remains.  If the parents/guardians permit this marriage, then there is no problem at all.  

And Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) knows best.
