America american dating muslim
When Humaira Mubeen graduated from college in 2012, she fumbled around for a place that felt true to her.
A pop-culture-and-tech-savvy millennial with liberal values and a strong attachment to her Islamic faith, she’s a hybrid of different identities. There was a lot of dialogue about relationships: How do you go about finding someone who is like you?
To many Western women this could be seen as hypocrisy and it is something that many will not be comfortable with.
Fortunately the majority of modern Muslims living in the West will opt to settle for just one, but again this is something that you will definitely need to discuss before dating you Muslim man.
Sometimes this will result in the children being sent to Islamic countries possibly not to return.
In the West it is rare for the woman to be required to wear the Hijab (head covering) yet it is still generally considered to be the man's 'right' to request that you do.
While many people are comfortable with their partner having different views, it can sometimes become an issue when it comes to choosing a religion for your children. Faithfulness Faithfulness is taken very seriously by Muslim men and they will be very strict on women who they perceive as having cheated on them.
However it does also mean that you are taking on both the man and his values and while you don't necessarily have to agree with them (the Muslim faith does not discriminate between religions), you will have to make sure that you are happy making compromises and comfortable with your partner's views just as in any inter-religion relationship.You will also need to be respectful of the Muslim faith around his family.Again this will depend very much on the Muslim man in question and how strictly he adheres to his faith and what his own personal views are.Another important point though is that while Muslims are allowed to date non-Muslims, they are told to date 'women of the book' meaning Christians or Jews.It is expected for there to be a shared belief in a single God, though this will depend again on the personal discretion of the man.
