    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 381/J)

     

    A Muslim woman can not marry a Hindu man; Allah says in the Holy Quran: And, do not marry unbelieving women --- nor marry (your girls) to unbelievers until they believe. (Surah Baqrah, 221).

     

    Therefore, they may not be halal for each other after having marriage and their marital relation will be regarded as adultery and prohibited. But, such a Muslim woman will not be considered as kafir by only marrying a Hindi man; therefore she will inherit from the property of her father.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
