Muslim women, do you date outside of Islam?

I've been rather curious as to how Muslim women feel about dating men who aren't Muslim.

And this is not just to the girls who just happen to be Muslim.

Even the girls who wear your hijab on a daily basis.

What's your stance on dating non-Muslim men?

  • It won't work, because even if this woman is interested in you, she knows that it is a wrong thing. Her parents, the mosque, and everyone else is grooming this girl to marry into the faith and not to deviate from that. Most of the time, this is a good idea because it keeps the woman open to pursue education, take up a family business, and to make wealth/career.

    These people view family very differently then most Americans and Europeans. They are based on chasity and truths to extreme angles sometimes.

    I am not Islamic, but I come from an Islamic family and most of them are still this way. So I would cut your losses and be satisfied being her friend.

  • Hello! I don't know if I am too late to answer this (I just found this website today lol)
    So basically, dating in general is not encouraged in Islam because of the possibilities that it might bring the person closer to Zina. (Zina is majorly generalized as unlawful premarital sexual intercourse, but there are some good websites on the internet that explain about this if you want to know more). Some Muslims choose not to date because of this. But to those who feel like they are strong enough to protect themselves from the zina although they are dating, they might consider going on a date.

    Honestly, Islam does not classify people according to races. In Islam, all races are the same. It's the good deeds that you do throughout your life that will differentiate you from others. So, it does not matter if you are White, Black, Asian, Middle Eastern or Hispanic (As an Asian, I really think other races are attractive! Lol). For me, I don't mind dating a non-Muslim of any race as long as I keep the limits (no drinking, no physical contact, no sex etc). The problem is a non-Muslim guy usually wants MORE than just nice conversations over coffee. But if I ever decided to settle down and get married, the husband must be a Muslim because that is what Islam required. So, the guy must be willing to convert to Islam if he really wants to marry me.. I know you did not mention about races at all, but I mentioned it because that is usually why we always marry those from our race/ culture. Because we understand each other's limits and we are usually from the same religion (majority) so it just makes thing easier. Hope this helps! :')

  • I would love to date a non-Muslim guy. The guys in my religion have all been raised to not date and to basically stick to the rules. Non-Muslims guys typically tend to be less serious. Atheists are even better than other religion guys because they often don't have something that sets the guidelines for who they can and cannot date (if they can date at all).

  • I'm Muslim, and it really depends on the girl and how much she's willing to give up. I'm married to a conservative Christian guy, so we both had to give up our families to be together. I love my parents, but he's the best thing that ever came into my life. He made me love everything. I would do it all over again for him. All of the struggles. I don't wear the hijab, but many girls are forced to wear the hijab by their parents. Those kind of girls usually will be very lenient because I feel like the stricter the parents are the more rebellious the children become.

    • Wow. Gave up families, as in, you're both completely estranged from your families? Or were your families simply disapproving of your decision?

    • Our families disapproved and were very embarrassed. We rarely talk.

  • based on my experience, no.

  • All of them (if I may speak on there behalve) know that if they obey the word of Allah, of there beloved prophet Mohammed... dating is a Zina, dating outside of faith is a Zina, there is only one faith to be kept in the household to be passed down to the next generation = EL Islam

    I have been in 2 very close relationships with two lovely Moroccan woman, they both were pretty Westernized in both appearance and speach, BUT BOTH KEPT TRUE TO THEIR FAITH AND BELIEVE IN ALLAH... MEANING, that I was or wasn`t going to take part of THE FAITH and that would determene how everything would evolve concerning the future of the shared relationship.

    I realy cared much, respected much, shared similarities within the life of a true believer, and even if there were some slight differents concernings customs and certain topics that were rather `sensitive`, if one loves, and one cares fully.. it doesn`t matter which faith you bear, but reality will kick in quit fast and it will end, not if it is the will of there own but of there family, community, ...

    Hope it helped some, true words of wisdom for all men concerning Muslimas.

  • If they are strict muslims they won't allow their daughter to date outside the faith, they would not allow someone other than a family member to be alone with her ie date. If she does date she would be subject to violence or posible honor killing.
