Salam Alaikum and welcome to e Harmony, where we help build great, long-lasting relationships.We listen to what’s important to Muslim singles, whether they’re looking for marriage or just hoping to create meaningful connections with like-minded individuals.(Lawful to you in marriage) are chaste women from the believers and chaste women from those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) before your time when you have given their due Mahr (bridal-money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage), desiring chastity (i.e.taking them in legal wedlock) not committing illegal sexual intercourse, nor taking them as girlfriends” [al-Maa'idah 5:4] Imam al-Tabari said in his commentary on this verse: “chaste women from the believers and chaste women from those who were given the Scripture” means, free woman among those whom have been given the Scripture, namely the Jews and Christians who believe in what is in the Tawraat (Torah) and Injeel (Gospel) from among the people who came before you, O believers in Muhammad, whether from among the Arabs or other people; you are permitted to marry them “when you have given their due Mahr (bridal-money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage)” which means, if you give to those whom you marry of your (Muslims’) chaste women and their (Jews’ and Christians’) chaste women their mahrs or dowries.” (Tafseer al-Qurtubi, 6/104) But it is not permissible for a Muslim man to marry a Magian (Zoroastrian) woman or a communist woman or an idol-worshipping woman, etc.It is not permissible for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim from any other religion, whether from among the Jews or Christians, or any other kaafir religion.
As we’ve discovered, great relationships are founded on true compatibility.
You can compare the things that are really important to you in a partner – your “must haves” and your “can’t stands”.
And you’ll be given the opportunity to really get to know each other, without the pressure of having to move faster than you’d like.
I have also argued for the liberal reform of Islam today, from within.
But, in a naively dangerous form of neo-Orientalism, the SPLC just arrogated to itself the decision over which debates we Muslims may have about reforming our own religion, and which are to be deemed beyond the pale.
