Muslim woman dating non muslim
Instead, she wants to draw attention to the fact that un-Islamic relationships are happening and she believes the young people involved deserve proper guidance."I guarantee about 90% of all Muslim households will have a son, daughter or relative engaging in such relationships, and instead of trying to advise these girls and guys, we sweep it under the carpet because it’s not 'halal' and it’s not supposed to be happening," she explains."I say yes okay, it’s not supposed to be happening but guess what? So let’s advise that 18-year-old girl in love with a guy who is pressuring her to get physical, and show her actually he doesn’t really care about you if he's putting you in that position."When Alghabban describes her own love life as a "work in progress" at the moment, she is at pains to point out that she doesn't let her own religiosity interfere too much.

However, irrespective of any interpretation, it is clear that this Qur’anic order applies to Muslim men and women equally.

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 purpose was to absolutely avoid the marriage of Muslims to polytheists who made every effort to stand against a religion that was defending the most vulnerable people on earth.Muslim men and women were, therefore, encouraged to get married to those who believe, like them, in one God symbolizing a monotheism purified from all other divinities and injustice.Thus, the said verse stipulates that Muslim men and women are allowed to contract marriage with believers ().It is worth mentioning that the the Qur’anic verse clearly stresses the totally egalitarian approach in favor of both men and women and which is not confusing at all.
