Salaam,
I am wondering if it is entirely forbidden for a Muslim man to marry a Sikh woman or if it something that is frowned upon. The couple in question have been dating for over 10 years and both are highly respectful of each other’s religion. They are both ready to get married, but the parents of either side are concerned about the interfaith marriage. Specifically, the parents of the Muslim man want to know if it’s okay to do a Nikah without the woman converting, and for the Muslim man to participate in the Sikh wedding ceremony but also not converting. 
 
Any clarification you can provide would be greatly appreciated!
