Researching the matrimonial sites, out of 1000 Muslim women, only 30% of them over the age of 50 have listed Islam as their religion, the rest have called them spiritual but not religious, and add that religion is no bar to them.
A majority of Muslims quietly go along with it, some have a lot of questions and some are ready to quote verses from Quran and make declarations that they are out of the pale of Islam.
The sole intent of this essay is to understand the struggle of “Single American Muslim women” and keeping them within the fold by expanding the fold to be reflective of God’s boundlessness and extending Prophet Muhammad’s mercy to the entire universe.
Answered by Ustadh Salman Younas Question: Assalam aleykum 1) I have heard that Muslim men are allowed to marry jew and christian women, from what is this understanding derived?2) I was wondering whether the same thing was true for women?The simple reason for this is that the divine command in the primary texts does not extend such an allowance to women.While scholars mention certain wisdoms underlying this rule, such as the fact that the religious identity of one’s progeny is less likely to be preserved in a marriage between a Muslim woman and non-Muslim man, the ruling ultimately is not subject to context nor whether such a wisdom is actually realized in a given situation. If a woman is in a situation where she is in a pre-marital relationship with a non-Muslim man, such a relationship must be ended as soon as possible.Forget Stereotypes The first thing to do is to drop any preconceived notions you have of Muslims.
At the present time Muslims are not getting the best press, and this is of course due to extremism.I have some questions about Islam, could you explain them for me? It is permissible for a Muslim man to marry a non-Muslim woman if she is Christian or Jewish, but it is not permissible for him to marry a non-Muslim woman who follows any religion other than these two.Is it permissible for someone who follows Islam to marry someone who does not follows Islam without that person converting to Islam after marriage? The evidence for that is the verse in which Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Made lawful to you this day are At‑Tayyibaat [all kinds of Halaal (lawful) foods, which Allaah has made lawful (meat of slaughtered eatable animals, milk products, fats, vegetables and fruits)].[al-Jassas, Ahkam al-Qur’an (-20); al-Qurtubi, Jami li-ahkam al-Qur’an (3-57)] 2.There is scholarly consensus that it is neither valid nor permitted for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim man.The food (slaughtered cattle, eatable animals) of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) is lawful to you and yours is lawful to them.
