Pros and cons of dating a muslim man
Arlandson A Muslim man is allowed to marry a Christian woman, but a Christian man is not permitted to marry a Muslim woman. 427) This verse, as noted, says that Islam permits Muslim men to marry non-Muslim women who are Christians and Jews, but a Jewish or Christian man may not marry a Muslim woman.
I remember hearing an interview on the radio with a Muslim, a few years ago. (In this article I will address only the Christian community.) What is the rationale behind the ruling?
Islam does not give the same rights to women as it does to men.
In fact, the Quran clearly says that women are inferior to men.
The New Testament in 1 Corinthians says that a Christian woman may marry only a Christian man (and vice-versa) (see also 2 Corinthians -18).
This means that a marriage between a Muslim and a Christian would be unequal.The difference between Islam and Christianity on religiously mixed marriages is simple.Islam allows Muslim men to marry Christian women, period.The answer is clear, if Islam is followed consistently. Where is the spiritual connection and agreement between husband and wife and God?
The New Testament The New Testament starts the soon-to-be married couple on an equal footing in the selection of a mate.
If a married couple starts their walk together with the same faith and theology, then this takes the pressure off of possibly converting the partner to the others faith.
