Abstract


Marrying women from the people of the Book (ahlul kitab) is a matter of dispute among Muslim scholars, some allow it and some forbid it. Sayyid Sabiq is among the scholars who allows Muslim men to marry women of the People of the Book under strict requirements to avoid harm and negative impacts that will occur if the marriage is carried out. This paper discusses the law of Muslim men marrying women of ahlul Kitab (the People of the Book) and analyzes it from the perspective of Sayyid Sabiq. Based on the results of the study conducted, the authors found the fact that Sayyid Sabiq allowed Muslim men to marry Ahlul Kitab women based on the following considerations: (i) To eliminate barriers between Ahlul Kitab and Muslims. (ii) As a means to establish social relations and closeness between others so that they can provide space for non-Muslims to learn and know the truth of Islamic teachings. (iii) As a means to invite them to follow Islam.
