Answered by Ustadha Zaynab Ansari Question: I am a Christian man who is deeply in love with a Muslim woman.
Since he is the head of the household the expectation is that he will respect her rights and the children will take his religion.This is true that she has nothing against my faith.She is agree to accept me with my faith and she wants me accept her with her faith, and the children would be MUSLIMS. Some of my friend adviced me to FORCE her to EMBRACE ISLAM, Like threaten "I won't marry you if you dont Embrace islam" This is what my friend adviced me, But as far as I realize, This wouldnt be fair at all. I guess, to embrace islam she must have the feelings that ALLAH is one and she should have the real feelings instead of fake feelings.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. She tried to defend herself by saying that he did not prohibit her from practicing Islam and he has agreed that the children will be Muslim. I don't know if they were married and she converted or if she was already Muslim when they married.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.Traditionally, Islamic law makes allowances for interfaith marriages only in the case of a Muslim man marrying a Christian or Jewish woman.A Qur’anic reference is Chapter 5, Verse 5: “This day are (all) good things made lawful for you.I wish to marry her but fear the consequences on her soul.Much of what I have researched says that this is not permissible because of the way the children will be raised and/or the non-Muslim (as being head of the household) may discourage her in her beliefs and practices.I like one girl, and we are gonna get WED in future.My parents are fully agreed with my decision, so her parents. The problem I am encounted with is, "She is Christian." While discussing with each others, I have asked her to Embrace ISLAM, And I have been given many information regarding islam so she can understand each and everything, It seems she doesnt want to EMBRACE islam.Also will the man allow the lady to be free in serving the God she has been serving Their families and background too. Because the rate at which tribalism is trending now, marriage between a man and a woman from different religion or ethnicity could be very hard to accomplish. A God won't say I should kill my fellow human to get some virgins .(I have great muslim friends).Also will the man allow the lady to be free in serving the God she has been serving Their families and background too.
