Interfaith Marriage

An interfaith marriage is a marital union in which the partners believe and belong to different religious traditions.

Question: Interfaith Marriage? A Muslim guy is engaged to a Christian girl. They plan on officiating their marriage through a Sheikh (Muslim priest) for his religion, then a Priest for her religion. My question is if it is haram (sinful) for a Muslim to be married by a Priest after he was already married by the Sheikh? This question isn't referring to me. It's my brother. Also, they've discussed their future, what they'll raise the kids and the families accept it, but only question the marriage ceremony part.

Answer: Not a good idea to have mixed faiths. This is traditionally a big issue in most interfaith marriages.
