Translations of this item:. Note to readers: This blog post on official advice to women not to marry Muslim men has, to my surprise and delight, become the springboard for an intense, heated, and personal dialogue between non-Muslim women romantically involved with Muslim men. Judging by a number of testimonies, the site has proved valuable to many women benefiting from advice and the sharing of information; for a couple of examples see the postings by Sally , Nourshehane , Jeweler46 , and Cindy starting here , continuing here , and ending here. Others have found solace in kindred spirits see the posting of Becs. Still others have drawn conclusions from their own experience and offered these for general use see the posting of Standfree. After a slow start, the discussion took off and now has over 20, comments.
Against all odds: Meet India’s happy interfaith couples
Like it or not, dating is a virtual world as much as a real one. Here we break down the best apps for everyone — whatever your gender, sexuality, religion or preferred type of partner — to help you find love. Or, at least, a shag. Would it be fair to say something of a malaise has set in when it comes to swiping left, right, up and down, fave-ing and generally doing all manner of finger strokes in an effort to find love?
Plus, a couple of newbies to watch out for. Women like Bumble because it puts them in control — while guys can still express an interest, women have to start the conversation.

Did you, muslim girl, ever fall in love with a nonmuslim guy. Morocco English board. Do we know the exact moment when we fall in sleep? I guess, no. The same thing with love. Now, we all know that a muslim girl must be married to a muslim man. How did your relationship end up with the guy in a question, did he change his religion to be muslim. Reply Quote. For the record: a muslim should marry a muslim. Many muslims say that men are allowed to marry christians or jews, but I don’t agree with that statement since christians and jews commit idolatry.
To marry someone who commits idolatry is forbidden for both men and women! Just wanted to share that information with you guys. Quote Tifah For the record: a muslim should marry a muslim. Hey first and foremost let me tell you that you brought very interesting topic to the forum.
Some call it haram — or forbidden — but more Muslims than ever are turning to apps like Minder and Muzmatch to find romance. When my friend first told me she was looking for a partner on Minder, I thought it was a typo. She didn’t.
In a recent series of postings on the Expat Forum, the following bits of advice were Islam allows a man to marry a woman from any of the five “true faiths”.
The following post is a guest post from Beth, who has been living in India for years. I had only been on my first date in India for about 30 minutes, and already I was almost in tears and wanted to go home! It was a nightmare! A friend introduced to me to a nice looking Indian guy who asked me for my number.
I thought, why not? Several days later I accepted his offer to go out for dinner. But just as we were parking to go into the restaurant he pulled out a three pack of condoms and told me he was ready. I struggled to maintain my composure. Frankly, I was pissed! How dare he assume he would get sex from me on the first date! After taking a couple of calming breaths, I asked him what gave him the idea that I was going to have sex with him on our date.
He seemed hurt, and equally shocked that I was upset. After further discussion he explained that he got that impression from watching American TV shows like Sex in the City and Desperate Housewives. But when I finally did I had a much better experience.

Were you actually able to keep a straight face posting that JD? Given the posts we have both seen over the time we have both been on the forums.
Her surname, however, is very Moroccan. Here comes the question: We have heard some Moroccans do not appreciate non-married people sleeping in the same room or holding hands publicly for example. This is especially the case for Muslim women ie my girlfriend with non-muslim men ie myself, a white Swede. Further, apparently hotels can be under pressure from the police to give out information about cases of such couples sharing rooms. Is this something we should be careful about?
And go for single rooms instead of double rooms?

Christian pastors and Muslim imams have come together to draw up guidelines detailing advice on how to deal with inter-faith marriages. Although marrying between faiths is entirely legal in Britain, couples often face resistance and hostility, both from family members and religious leaders. Occasionally both Muslims and Christians feel pressure to convert to another’s faith in order to avoid fallouts and ostracism.
The new guidelines by the Christian-Muslim forum reinforce the need for religious leaders to accept inter-faith marriages and warn that no one should ever feel forced to convert. The publication of the document, which will receive a high-profile launch at Westminster Abbey today, is significant because those supporting it include imams from the more orthodox Islamic schools of thought and evangelical Christians. Among those who have signed up to the document include Sheikh Ibrahim Mogra, a prominent Leicester-based imam from the conservative Deobandi school, the Right Rev Paul Hendricks, associate bishop of Southwark Catholic Archdiocese, and Amra Bone, one of the only women in the country to sit in a Sharia court.

Never marry potential. The golden rule is, if you can’t be happy with the person the way he or she is now, don’t get married. As a colleague of mine so wisely put.
Raman says : March 3, at pm. I married my muslim girlfriend after a 1 year hard fight with both my and her parents. We knew we would face big problems in the early days infact we even decided to split but the power of true love never let us and we were ready to face the consequences as expected. It was very hard for me especially with the job I do in Air force but nothing stopped us.
You need to be very patient,and talk with her about how to go about this, best thing is to talk to the parents directly and assure them that you will take care of their daughter and will not let her down, sounds easy but not. When I went to talk to her parents their family pushed me out of the house in front of the whole neighbourhood and my parents were not happy at all either, both our family went into the fight but we never gave up we were firm in our position.
It wasnt easy, sleepless nights, lots of fights and there was even a point where I nearly resigned my job in the airfoce. Without taking steps nothing will happen, stay committed and be there for eachother. Finally, around a year later my parents gave me the support as I convinced them for long and with their help I married her. We are happily married now and soon to be blessed with a child.

Conversion to Islam
Aug 25 5 Elul Torah Portion. Blind love is not the way to choose a spouse. Here are practical tools for keeping your eyes wide open. With the divorce rate over 50 percent, too many are apparently making a serious mistake in deciding who to spend the rest of their life with.
It has little relationship to the man you marry unless that man is very religious and would like I won’t disagree that there are many Arab/Muslim men who would hope that their wives i came across this forum as I am having trouble to decide.
Like many of the youth today, I continued to abide by my parents rules and just held onto the dream that one day I would get married and everything would be perfect. However, exactly how I was going to get married was not discussed. I finally met a young man I was interested in marrying, but I had no idea how to navigate the experience and found myself lost and confused. This type of idealistic thinking leading to confusion and even rebellion continues to be prevalent in our community.
Every Muslim is raised with the idea that they will someday get married, but prior to that there can be no interaction with the opposite gender. Out of a fear of western values that accept pre-marital sex, the Muslim community has become paralyzed when approaching the issue of dating.
