Christian dating a muslim man


(Peace) Dear Teresa, Let me first ask you to pass my congratulations to the man who is blessed to marry such a religious and broadminded lady!Mutual understanding is a primary demand for the success of any marriage.Thus a Muslim finds no harm in his wife’s being a Christian or a Jew, for the spirit of tolerance Islam holds for other religions is ingrained in him.In his response to the question you raised, the eminent Muslim scholar, Sheikh Muhammad Al-Hanooti, member of the North American Fiqh Council, states: “If Allah is the one who prohibits a Muslim woman from marrying a non-Muslim, then we as Muslims are supposed to believe it and to take it.

This is because marriage is not based on fulfilling one’s sexual desires; rather, it is an institution.If your question is about the legal opinion of Islam, concerning marriage between a Muslim man and a Christian or Jewish woman, it is permissible.On the other hand, if your question is about the social situation, the Muslim society should never object something unless the Islamic law outlaws it.A Muslim male or female should not marry a non-Muslim male or female.The only exception is given to Muslim men who are allowed to marry the chaste girls from among the People of the Book.This makes excellent potential for a successful marriage.
