Recently my boyfriend and I have made the decision to get married. He is Iranian and I am Malaysian Indian. I have no problems converting if that's what it's going to take to get married here but will my husband-to-be get a Malaysian citizenship after the marriage or is the process a little more complicated than that?

1. You are 23? How old is he?
2. Is he in Malaysia now? What sort of visa/pass/permit is he holding now?

Yes, there are so many complications. Read thru the past posts in this forum. Iranians are not given permanent residence (PR) even after more than 10 years here although they have children born here with Malaysian spouse.

Yes I'm 23, he is 20. Right now he is under a student visa. But it's expiring sometime this year after he graduates. I read so much on Iranians marrying malaysians and still not being able to get PR here but also if he gets a spouse visa under me, is that okay for the time being and also do I have to convert to Muslim

under a student visa. But it's expiring sometime this year after he graduates.

Those under student pass have to go back to their country when the the pass expires and no marriage is allowed under student pass or ordinary work permits.

Take notes:-
1.  There is no student visa, only student pass.
2.  There is no spouse visa, only Long Term Social Visit Pass (LTSVP) meant for foreign spouse. Malaysia is slightly different from other countries with "spouse visa". Foreign spouse is only granted temporary residency not permanent residency (PR) (especially for MEN).
3.  Malaysian non-Muslim has to convert to be a Muslim in order to marry a Muslim and the process of conversion is irrevocable.
4.  Muslim can marry Muslim, but Muslims of the Sunni Sect have other issues when marrying another Muslim of the Shias Sect.
5.  Malaysian Muslims are of the secular Sunni teachings whereas Iranians Muslims are perceived to be of the radical form of Shias teachings.
6.  Malaysia has outlawed the Shias teachings since 1996 via National Fatwa. Shias foreigners can practise their own faith but cannot spread their teachings. Locals are sent for "reeducation".

If it is true love, you go over to Iran and be converted there and then migrate to Iran. That is the best solution.

Read on 
a)  What is Sunni Teachings, Shias Teachings. Ask Dr. Google.
b)  What is the whole mess in the Middle East, Sunnis fighting Shias is all about.
c)  The treatment of Malaysia Immigration towards spouse from Iran.

Make no mistake, foreigner male spouses of any race or religions, are the best in this part of Asia. Everything is "YES Ma'am". There are just too many rotten local males not knowing how to treat their women well enough unlike their foreign counterparts. Is there a choice when you are a squating in a foreign land?
