Things to know when dating a muslim man
Middle Eastern men and women are some of the most attractive people in the world.They are tall, have gorgeous dark complexions, and almond shaped eyes with thick, lush lashes.I am a secret to almost everyone he knows, and when he took me out to lunch at his favorite café he asked me not to hug him when I arrived, just shake hands.I understand why, I really do, but personally as a woman of 41 years old that still wants to have children, am I kidding myself to think that he might eventually come around or that it could even work at all?I knew he was a player and he knew I wanted there to play.So the old fligns disappeared and we started a serious relationship.
That is not to say that your Muslim friend doesn’t care about you or even love you, but it isn’t necessary. Please do not make the mistake of assuming that religion is a minor detail– Islam is never minor.So, traditionally, marriages were arranged with the couple not having any unsupervised time together before the marriage – or possibly even meeting each other before the engagement.Things are changing though, and especially in the Muslim immigrant communities.Premarital sex in the Muslim religion is strictly forbidden.
Since dating (in the Western sense) involves actions like kissing and touching which ultimately result in premarital sex, Islamic scholars consider that dating is haram (forbidden).
I am not a Muslim woman though I have much respect for the faith.
