"In March 1, 2009, Takia converted to Islam and married Farhan Azmi in an Islamic Nikah ceremony". I found that from wikipedia.
I am surprised. Good for her. Everyone knows whats best for themselves.
What is the problem .Every one should have freedom to decide whether he or she wants change the religion for marriage before marriage.Of course it should be decided mutually by both the parties But then they would also have the choice to marry or not to marry.What about anti male laws like Dowry prohibition Act 1961 and section 498a IPC ,Domestic violence Act.Those are saying about women rights but what about males rights .They think that women have all rights and males should have zero rights.And this is just tip of iceberg
Her mom was Muslim and who told that Muslim woman can not drive and have education I am a Muslim woman I can drive I have good education I have freedom and I have respect.

to the person who wrote this in a comment "First of all do not comment on something you don't know. Hindus can marry anyone and they don't belive in coversion and moreveover do not want any one of the other religion to be converted to the Hindu. Second, Ayesha is already a Muslim. May I know why a women need to be cpnverted to Muslim to marry a Muslim man, why does this rule applicable to muslim man? This is all crap. All restriction and prohibition is put on women.
A muslim women can't drive, can't go Mosque, can't study, can't move freely outside (except home). Can't wear pants, can't work in the company. What is this?"
"Hindus can marry anyone" - you hve wrong information!!!! Hindus cant marry anyone they have to be hindus!! Read up on it before you make conclusions!
Wasn't she already a Muslim?
i am very happy for my swt sister..........,
I am so happy for my sister.
i love aish TAKIA
You r agood job
I am happey
ayesha takia muslman hai
If ayesha takia was not a muslim and has converted to islam then Mashallah im happy that she is a muslim
Let me clarify one thing that someon in a comment sed that all prohibitions are put on muslim women well let me tell u that ur wrong god knows what world ur living in muslim women are allowed to work, wear pants, Go to the mosque and study islam allows them too
Islam believes in equality that everyone should be educte and help the deen through thier education islam doesnt specifically say women infanct it says everyone
So before commenting something fake first find outbthe truth learn more about islma before posting something untrue
First of all do not comment on something you don't know.

Muslim men are only allowed to marry other muslims and the people of the book,meaning christians and jews.No hindus or people from any other fate.muslim woman are only allowed to marry muslim men.
it is in the quran.
5:5 ...(lawful unto you in marriage)are (not only) Chaste woman who are believers ,but chaste woman among the people of the book.
the above only applies to men because it does not say in the above verse, MEN among the people of the book, but woman only and this is confirmed in another verse
2:122 ... Nor marry(your girls) unto unbelievers: a man slave who believes is better than an unbeliever.
if a non muslim man becomes muslim before the nikkah,then the nikkah is permissible
if a non muslim girl that is not a jew or christian becomes muslim before the nikkah the nikkah is still permissible because at the time the nikkah takes place s/he is a muslim, a believer.

Lets clarify all of this...For women in Islam, they can only marry a Muslim. So it is forbidden for a Muslim women to marry a non Muslim. But as for the men, they can marry either a Muslim women or a Christian (maybe a hindi to). But the non Muslim women has to convert before the Nikkah happens or else the marriage is not accepted and is not permissible, unless that women converts to Islam. So if Ayesha Takia did not have any Muslim in her, she would obviously have to convert for the marriage to be accepted. Also, you cannot have a nikkah if you are not a Muslim. So either way shes a full Muslim no
you are wrong and you are miss guiding others,in Islam it is forbidden for both men and women to marry a non Muslim until they convert to islam( and every authentic Islamic book confirms this) this is same for both gender..only a certain sect says that a Muslim man can marry a non Muslim woman without converting her.but a woman cant.I used to think the same but now I've found out the truth is different! and as you said a Muslim woman can only marry a Muslim man...I am confused!!so you mean even if a non Muslim man converts to Islam before their nikkah still they cant get married??(just like you mentioned the process for a non Muslim girl marring a Muslim) you didn't clarify anything you made it more confusing!
Today is 10th April.
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY Ayesha. May Allah ALmighty gives you good health and prestige. Ameen !
Iam happy,because Ayesha converted to islam....Welcome Welcome Welcome Welcome Welcome
most probably she doesn't give a crap like most of you prehistoric bigots!!!
Anonymous i believe you are saying & satisfying your self..
Considering her name "Ayesha", that is the same name of the wife of prophet Mohammed peace be upon him, so given that I dont think she converted or anything like that, but was born and originally is a muslim.

well there is SPECIAL MARRIAGE ACT in india too for people who have secular marriage,means people from diff religion or cast whatever.So people really DON NOT have to convert to marry.
Hey wait...so does this mean SRK ISN'T really married to Gauri? Then HEY---it's open season on the old raisin! Let's get him!
Under all personal marriage laws in India, both parties have to belong to the same religion for that religion's personal laws to be applicable. Therefore, in a Nikah, both parties have to be Muslim for the marriage to be valid. Similarly, in a Hindu wedding, unless both parties are not Hindu, the Hindu Marriage Act will not be applicable. People from different faith have to get married under Special Marriage Act when neither party wants to convert to the others religion. Ayesha Takia would have had to convert for the Nikah to be valid.
see guyz ... i dont no what hinduism or other religion says about this issue ...but islam says that a muslim woman cannot marry a non muslim ...wether he is hindu,christian or jew....but for man ...in islam ....a muslim man can marry only hum katab woman like only christian and jews ....coz they believe in those holy books which muslims also believe ....but islam restricted this for muslim woman coz ...in ur married life ur children 's religion is wat the father religion is .....so for that reason islam doesnot allow muslim woman to marry non muslim ....but here i see many nonmuslims and even sum muslims blame islam and say its conservative but matter of fact i find it gud becoz if u want to maary a person then there shud b no differences btw u nd him and religion is very important for every one so how cud u live with the guy or girl who doesnot belong to ur religion ....both husband and wife wudnot tolerate each other views and at the end result wud b separation ....so i totally sport this ideology of islam.............
See I'm not taking side of any religion but u just think when ur men bring women from another religion u r very happy to accept them but just think of that family how much problems they will face in their society coz for u it is difficult to understand 'coz u r not allowing ur daughter or sister to marry in other religion so u don't understand the pain of that family
you people know nothing about true ISLAM...go get ur self religiously educated & then talk whatever u want & as much as u want!!!!
My friend was in LOVE with this Muslim guy. Both are doctors. The boys family was all well educated and they all were 'open minded' as we had assumed. But when it came to marriage, they asked my frend to convert. Eevn the Boy asked her to convert. Needless to say, she did.
Now they even changed her name and she is not allowed to visit her family during Ganpati n all hindu festival. She even can't pray pr go to temple. She has to do namaz and go to dargah.
Not that its bad...but I feel changing religion should be by choice n not come with "ifs" and "buts"
nope she didnt she just got married to him thats all shes gujrati
Ayesha.congratulate for your marriage
I don't think she converted to Islam as she was already a muslim.
I think wherer there is love, religion does'nt matter because according to me love is god and u can find god in every religion
try to think about your love, stop thinking about religions
at anon Wed, 2010-06-30 13:40, i guess you've never heard of khans and how it's a great way to get into bollywood with that last name. well if what you said is the case, how come kat changed her last name from tourquette to kaif and imran's last name played a huge role for him to get into the industry. please stop making generalizations.
So what if she has converted to Islam, just look at her wedding pictures, does she look like she was forced or unhappy!!!!
Any way, why is it that Muslim actors, be it male or female, all seem to be afraid to say they are Muslim in Bollywood these days? They all either don't want to admit being Muslim or make concessions to appease the country they act in? And you complain that a women with money and fame has converted to Islam out of her choice is a terrible thing! Sour grapes is all I can say.
Ayesha Takia only had a Nikal ceremony and did not have a civil marriage. So, under muslim personal law which is recognised in India, Ayesha would have had to convert to Islam before marrying Abu Azmi's son. And considering her father in law in a virulently communal leader, am sure he wouldn't accept a Hindu daughter in law without conversion. If Ayesha Takia is denying converting, her marriage under muslim law is void.
What are you all arguing about? She is NOT a muslim. She didn't convert as per her own interview with TOI. She also said she dosen't really believe in religion but only in God and spirituality. Hence religion does'nt matter to her. The interview was not long ago. Maybe a month or so. Search for it online and you might find it.
And even if she had then who cares? There are plenty of examples of people converting from all major faiths to all other major faiths in Bollywood, India and the world.
I LIKE Ayesha Takia :D
Takia is very tacky.
i think all riligion should recognize all riligions i am not agreed about islam that do not recognize other riligions which is already billions of ppls but so far i am sock baout 6millions of muslim become christnism i think they are not satisfied by islam.
Actually you can call somebodys religion hypocritical, fanatical because this is covered by freedom of speech. Criticism of religion is allowed. If somebody cannot handle that, then don't surf the internet.
Congrats to Ayesha on her marriage.
As for converting or not, well if somebody converts to get married, then that conversion is basically a proforma one. Not a sincere one. Islam means submission to Allah, not submission to your boyfriend/girlfriend. Conversion should only take place if you have truly studied Islam in debth and find that it appeals to you. Not because you want to be with somebody.
But on the other hand, dating is viewed as forbidden by all "scholars" of Islam and same goes for intermingling with the opposite sex, so one might question how religious/muslim, Ayesha's husband is in the first place.
I think it is ridiculous that people bring religion into love and that people are so eager to judge people. Salman Khan's has fatwas issued against him and his family for observing hindu rites. Shahrukh Khan has been trashed by some muslims for being married to a hindu and having the Quran next to the hindu scripture in his house. That is call respect in marriage. Something some people will never understand.
Either way, Ayesha has taken this step, and all the best for her. I think she is gorgeous and I really respect her for not falling for the pressure in bollywood to be daring/bold and instead opting for more alternative roles.
she looks gorgeousss =]
uhmmm i wuld nevaa change my religion 4 anione but my aunt who married my uncloe was hindu nd she converted 2 a christion
well it depends on how a person thinks i dnt think it shuld matter wat religion u r as long as u luv eachother

you can't call someone's religion hypocritical or fanatical ideology. if you don't agree with something don't no one is forcing you to and plz don't give such comments about a religion. no one has raised a question about what goes on in your religion and that is because everyone is mature enough to understand people's beliefs and feelings.
I just said what is believed in the religion of Islam and i respect that, thats it.
Saara (lazy to login)
she's the most perfect bride i've ever seen. i hope i look as good as her on my wedding day.
i've seen an old interview of her where she said 'inshAllah' which means God Willing in Arabic and is aterm used by Muslims. i've also read that her mothers name is Farzana or Farhana or Fareeda or sumink. Newho it was a Muslim name. i think maybe shes just turning a new leaf in terms of religion. and ur right everyone belives whats best for themselves. Islam is not a scary or different religion. They believe in all the Christian Prophets such as Noah, Jacob, Solomon, Moses, Abraham and Jesus. however they do not believe jesus was Divine. They also worship one God and pray five times a day.
how come no one converts to hinduism when one partner's a hindu?
It pathetic when people convert it shows how cowardice you are.
secondly she is half bangladeshi so she might already be muslim she might not have converted. And you cannot convert to hinduism you must be born into it. there is so converting "ceremony" such as other religions have.

Yeah that was hypocritical and its not even in Islam...I don't know how that Anon came up with this...
Sangettha Bijlani is now Ayesha Azharudddin after marrying Azharuddin..
Wonder why he cannot convert to H1nduism, if it was for LOVE!!
A muzlim is forbidded to marry a non-muzlim.
They have to convert to get married.
such stupidity ANON when you write in bold to scream for attention...just cos she is an adult doesn,t mean she has a choice .She loved a man for what he is and not his religion but she had to convert just cause she would have lost him otherwise..what a sicj ideology and talk about equal right..a muslim man can marry anyone but a muslim women can,t...hmmm...that speaks volumes innit...
i am sure her fiance definitely had some influence on her. yeah, stars are not forced but they are mature?? well most of them are actually very impulsive and hasty and end up having pretty abnormal lives except for a select few.
PLEASEEEE GUYS... STOP DISGRACING EACH OTHERS RELIGION.
I didn't know this thread would up like this =(
would this still be an issue if a hindu man married a muslim girl? or is it a problem because its a hindu girl and not vice versa?
If a Hindu Man married a Muslim woman..no way would he make them convert...cuz Hinduism Preaches TOLERANCE not converting others..while the Muslim religion preaches calling all NON MUSLIMS KAFIRS!!!! This is why in Hinduism..its the worst sin that can be done..marrying a Muslim! Ask any Hindu...and they'll agree!!!!!!!
Saara ur comment.."a muslim man can marry a woman from other religion but a muslim woman can't marry a man from other religion its thought that the woman can be forced or persuaded easily to change her religion." That's supposed to be fine? What a hypocritical and fanatical ideology...
let's not make fools of ourselves by commenting on such sensitive issues without giving it some thought
people do what they have to do for their lives, their families' honor and respect etc.
it's sad when forms all over ask, religion, caste, subcaste

Yeah. My uncle married a Hindu, and it doesn't matter to us at all; we're happy. Why should it matter anyway? They love each other and that's all what matters...yeh sab insaano ki bhanayi hui cheezein hain!
Submitted by Anonymous on Fri, 2009-07-24 14:22.
no its not that both have to be muslim to get married. a muslim man can marry a woman from other religion but a muslim woman can't marry a man from other religion its thought that the woman can be forced or persuaded easily to change her religion.
please without knowning something completely don't make random comments and its not a disgusting or racist ideology. we have to learn to respect every religion.
umm wasnt she already muslim???
i think she was!!
"because in islam religion a woman and a man should be both muslim to get married and islam does not recognize hinduism"
So 'tolerance' is a one way street. What a disgusting and racist ideology.
surprising but yeah it's her personal choice and must be respected
Shes partially a muslim anyway, One of her parents is a muslim!
Anonymous on Fri, 2009-07-24 02:43.
bang on! loved your comment!
IF CONVERTING IS SOOOOOOOO BAD WHY R ALL OF THESE WOMEN DOING IT??? AND U CAN´T TELL ME THAT STARS R -FORCED- TO CONVERT...ANYWAYS TELL ME WHY??
Irrespective of whether Ayesha was forced to convert or not, I think it's barbaric if people have to convert just beacuse they marry a person from a certain religion. Point in case, Sharmila Tagore who had to officially convert to Islam when she married Pataudi.
SHES OLD AND MATURE ENOUGH TO KNOW WHAT SHES DOING ..AND BESIDES THAT SHES A STAR..NOONE COULD "FORCE" HER..IF U KNOW WHAT I MEAN..
"Doesn't matter whether you run on a treadmill or around the park, both are exercise."
lolz anon, that was funny. and very appropriate cause ayesha takia DOES need to exercise, hehehe
because in islam religion a woman and a man should be both muslim to get married and islam does not recognize hinduism
no she's not muslim..she is hindu gujarati..but yea its her life..she can do whatever she wants..i dont think she was forced..she did out of love for her husband
she has a mind of her own..and if she wanted to convert she did!...every religion is beautiful...i dont get the point of this post..its only gonna get blown up and bring in fights from ignorant ppl who r gonna give their 2 cents about being forced and all that b.s.
Many hindu girls have converted ....we dont go around discussing it...if they've been open minded why cant we be? its THEIR decision ...geez
Who cares about religion anyways...
religion is made by people for their own selfish motives,GOD is one,respect humanity,spread love and get over this reigion war.
Doesn't matter whether you run on a treadmill or around the park, both are exercise.
Would you say 'good for her' if a Muslim woman converts to Hinduism, Sikhism or Christianity? If you would, I respect you, if not, you're a hypocrite.
Religions of tolerance don't presume or compel you to convert.
why are people assuming she was forced !? maybe she wanted to convert willingly.
to the anon below .... u say that she converted to a muslim forcefully, u say that with such a certainity. What makes u soo sure that she was forced?? maybe she did it out of love? Maybe she was born a muslim but never declared it to the media until her marriage? c'mon .... her name is ayesha a very common muslim name, so im SURE she wasn't FORCED...
religion is a fairy tale
ohhh my NOO!! WHY WHY?? I hate when people convert to different religions!! Be Proud of who u are!! I m guessing that probably her husband or her in-laws forced her to convert, No one shud be forced to convert!!!
Her mother was Muslim but i guess she wasn't.
She is young for marriage. only 23 years old.
i htought she was muslim before///to each their own...i guess...no religion should force one to convert!!!!!
Her Mother was a Muslim anyway...so it shouldn't matter.
her life good for her
