Jewish muslim dating
Muslim jurists took a very strong position on this matter--many of them going as far as saying if a Muslim woman marries a kitabi she is as good as an apostate.I think, and God knows best, that this position is not reasonable and the evidence supporting it is not very strong.According to their own religious law, Muslim jurists argued, Christian men may force their Muslim wives to convert to their (the husbands') religion.Put differently, it was argued, Islam recognizes Christianity and Judaism as valid religions, but Judaism and Christianity do not recognize the validity of Islam as a religion.Importantly, the Hanafi, Maliki, and Shafi'i jurists held that it is reprehensible (makruh) for Muslim men to marry a kitabiyya if they live in non-Muslim countries.They argued that in non-Muslim countries, mothers will be able to influence the children the most.Join others for online singles dating with chat, email, instant messaging, voice intros, bulletin boards and MORE!LETTER 1 of 2As-Salaam-Alaikum: I don't mean to bother you but this is disturbing my mind and I need an educated explanation.

I don't know if they were married and she converted or if she was already Muslim when they married.
But I should confess that there is another reason for the delay. I did receive a large number of inquiries about this same issue, and I have tended to avoid responding to them because I am not exactly very excited about handling this weighty and serious problem.
I was at a Muslim Sister's Fashion Show (predominately African American sisters) when during casual conversation a young sister (mid 20s) stated that her husband is Christian. She was under such a heavy attack that I could not get that question in.
However this issue is one that I need to understand because I can't adequately explain why there is a prohibition for the Muslim female in marrying from the people of the book and there is no prohibition for the Muslim male.
It doesn't matter whether they have been together 2 years or 20 years, the advice the sister receives is to divorce him.
Then there are the cases of sisters whose preference is to marry within their race but there are not enough suitable African American Muslim men at least in this city. When I say suitable African American Muslim men, I mean those who are knowledgeable about the Deen and truly strive to practice it, those who have truly accepted the role and responsibilities of the Muslim male and do not demand that the woman provide more financially for them than they provide for her, those who are not extremist, those who have not been married and divorced 3, 4 or 5 times with children all over the place, those who are not trying to have several wives when they can't afford to take care of one, etc.
