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.
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.
Of course, modern living doesn’t exactly permit it to work out this way.
My good friend in Palestinian often goes out to lunch with his female colleagues.
In fact, it is often encouraged as it is believed that the woman will convert to Islam.Everyone is part of a family, a people group, and/or a community.Decisions are made as groups, not individuals and pressure is put on by families.Muslim women are held to incredibly high standards for modesty.Under Islamic traditions, men and women aren’t expected to talk to each other at all.And, if she did manage to meet a non-Muslim man, would she be able to overcome the social pressures which have been put upon her since birth and decide to date the guy?One thing you will notice is that Muslim women are more likely to date outside their faith as they get older.At first, they wanted her to marry a Palestinian man. When talking about Muslim dating, it is important to remember there is a big difference between the rules of Islam, and the rules associated with tradition and culture. Like how Islam says that it is permitted for a man to marry a non-Muslim woman.Islam may permit this, but the man’s culture and family may forbid it completely.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.
