Muslim and dating

If you are thinking of dating a Muslim, don’t underestimate the power of tradition and culture.

Islam allows Muslim men to date outside of the faith.

In fact, it is often encouraged as it is believed that the woman will convert to Islam.

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.

He is just using you until he can find a “good Muslim girl” to marry.

And, in Islam, if you get someone to convert, you are rewarded in this life and the next.

Muslim dating is a lot more relaxed for men than women.

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.

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.

This is especially true if the Muslim man or woman is first-generation and from a country which is war-torn.
