Muslim woman dating non muslim
She explains: "Women can go on dates in a public setting but must keep the relationship and line of conversation non-sexual, and not put themselves in a situation where they're alone in an enclosed environment with a boy, because we're mindful that one thing may lead to another if two people feel a certain way about each other and are alone."There's a dark side to the role, however, and she receives abuse online every day because of her frank, controversial content.
It's particularly intense when she uploads something "that might challenge some people’s rigid views of Islam," she explains.
According to a broad consensus religiously sterile, a Muslim woman is formally forbidden to marry a non-Muslim man regardless of his religion, while a Muslim man is allowed to get married to a non Muslim woman, mainly a Christian or a Jew, considered by the Islamic schools as “People of the Book”.
What does the Qur’an say about this issue and how does it deal with the marriage of Muslim men and women to non-Muslims?
"The more I spoke of my relationship with him – I'd met him on Tinder...which isn’t a norm – the more I got messages from my female following about their guy issues." At first she'd answer most of them on Snapchat, but soon she was receiving a hundred messages a day from Muslim women seeking advice about their not-so-Muslim relationships and how to make them halal. Dating as a Muslim woman is different than it is for many others, she explains, in that "there’s less 'I like you, let’s see where this goes,' and more 'I like you, do you see yourself marrying me in the future?
Asma LamrabetIt goes without saying that the marriage of a Muslim woman to a non-Muslim man is one of the main taboo issues in debates on Islam.
On the one hand, the Qur’an showed “Tolerance” towards the fact of slavery that was universally common at the time; on the other hand, it sought to break the first chains of social hierarchy by preferring these “poor” believing slaves to those wealthy people who formed the elite then.
By getting married to slaves regardless of their social hardship, Islam encouraged Muslims to value people on other basis than their social class, and henceforth; find a balance between the differences established by the ethnic-tribal system at that time.
However, irrespective of any interpretation, it is clear that this Qur’anic order applies to Muslim men and women equally.
Yet, none of the different Islamic exegeses allude to this.
