Muslim man dating christian woman who sings the dating game song
Here is a piece of advice for non-Muslim women dating Muslim men: As members at point out, this has nothing to do with religion.
It is the constant struggle he will feel between his family, culture, religious views, and feelings for you.
Everyone is part of a family, a people group, and/or a community.
Decisions are made as groups, not individuals and pressure is put on by families.
There is a lot of debate about whether it is halal or haram for Muslim women to date outside of the faith.
The general conservative opinion is that it is forbidden, since the faith is passed down through the man.
Families have an extremely strong influence on their children – even from across the ocean!!
”To give you an idea of how strong tradition is, I know from Muslim backgrounds who religiously fasts during Ramadan.
Under Islamic traditions, men and women aren’t expected to talk to each other at all.
Before you dismiss this as weird, consider how many atheists from Christian backgrounds put up Christmas trees each year.
Traditions are part of the fabric of our lives, and it is hard to let them go. As Zeba Iqbal says of this little voice, it leaves them very self-conscious and uncomfortable interacting with each other.
If she isn’t married by 30, meeting Muslim men becomes very difficult.
In an interview for Huffington Post Live, Palestinian-Muslim comedian Zahra Noorbakhsh joked about her relationship with an atheist man, and how her parents came to accept it. Then, when those alarm bells started ringing as she got older, they just wanted her to get married.
If the Muslim man does not tell his parents (or at least friends) about you within the first year of the relationship, then just walk away.
