Question

As-salamu alaykum,

I have a burning question and also need some assistance.

I am “engaged to be married”, my fiancé is christian and I am a muslim revert. Am I correct by understanding that it is permissible for me to get married to a christian woman? If so, is it possible for you to put something for me in writing to confirm this?

Hope to hear from you soon.
