Dating a muslim men
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.Recognise that the views of Muslim extremists do not reflect the views of other Muslims, and most Muslims are extremely peace loving men.Mohamed Ali for instance was Muslim, and this is why he opted to be a conscientious objector during the war (and subsequently was stripped of his title).I even tried searching for ‘dating a Muslim man is great.’ I looked up something else for comparison: 1) Dating a Christian man. Two top titles were 7 Reasons You Should Date a Religious Man, and How Godly Men See Dating and Marriage. I have never enjoyed getting drunk, and rarely if ever participated in alcohol related festivities during university and afterwards.Needless to say, the results were far less discouraging. Dating a partner who also does not participate in this social activity is absolutely perfect. As anyone who has experienced the start of new and exciting romance would expect, I am over the moon with joy.It is early in the relationship, and though I feel generally optimistic about our future, I am definitely still in that ‘honeymoon’ phase where I spend a great deal of time gushing over pictures of him on Facebook.
Another aspect to consider is that if you are to marry a Muslim, he will likely very strongly push for children to be raised in the Muslim faith.
Muslim men are very passionate about their beliefs and their traditions and many people will see this as a highly attractive quality.
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.
Family Oriented: Like many religions, marriage and families are highly valued in Islam.
And from personal experience, I have seen Muslim friends host their brothers to help them find jobs in new countries, opening their homes to provide shelter for extended family members.
Approach your dating with Muslim men as you would with any other man – judge him on his own merits and keep an open mind.
