I am a non-Muslim with my boyfriend who are Muslim are finding way to get marry without converting.

We are both still staying in Malaysia, is finding country to move on.

1. Is that possible for us to register our marriage in other country like Singapore but we are not the citizen or permanent resident?

2. If can, then our marriage registration in Singapore need to be registered according to Malaysian Marriage Law?

3. So how if we both get marry in other country, then the baby is Malaysian or that country citizen?

4. If we get marry in other country without me converting, is that impossible for me to go back to Malaysia? or... we can go back but not for long period to avoid the penalty of Syariah?

5. Can you please suggest to me the best solution for our marriage without converting?

1. In Malaysia, there are 1000's of couples like you.
2. Don't expect any helpful answer to any questions regarding mixed marriage when it comes to ISLAM, except "can not".
3. You can live together, but complications will happen when/if kids come into picture.
4. Reason for this is that in Malaysia, corrupt politics (Apartheid) have interfered and rule issues like freedom of choice.
5. Suggest you move away from the country when you have kids, at least the kids will have freedom of choice.
6. That is what I have done with my "Muslim" partner. She is a Christian, cursed with an IC that says "ISLAM". She never chose that - her parents did.

Best of luck!

Ahahaa... So sorry, you can't marry without converting. However, if you decide to convert to get married properly you can go to Jabatan Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan (JAWI) and convert on the same day and received RM1,500 gift money. You can keep your old name, just add Abdullah or any other Abdul ___ at the end of it.

Download marriage application form from the internet.

You will need: -
1. Pengesahan Mastautin from the local mosque or ...
2. HIV blood test result
3. Copies of ICs

Permission to marry is granted within 48 hours and then you can do a registry marriage in the religious dept and have your "grand wedding ceremony"   Somewhere else. If you love each other then make the sacrifice.

@Syariah Law

I have already converted and get my sijil. Why I never receive the RM1,500 as mentioned by you? Is it taken by themselves already?

Sad to say that you have to CONVERT to Islam before marry. I have a Muslim girlfriend as well and we plan to move to another country without anyone interfering our daily life as well as choice of religion. Also, it is good for your child as it will not be cursed with Islam at the birth certificate and ID.
