I find myself in a hard situation with a Muslim man I love.I write because I don’t have resources within the Muslim community and would love that perspective.From the beginning it has been clear that there are obstacles to our being together and we kept it very casual and light, but in the past few months we have become much, much closer and he expressed his love for me, and now I have allowed myself to love him very dearly also.However, what just happened a couple hours ago brought our true situation very present to me.Although it is common to hear that in South Asian/African countries men pressurise prospective wives and their families for high dowries etc, it is very unlikely a Muslim man will marry purely because his future wife is filthy rich.Wealth is a great turn-on; it's power, opportunity, intimidating for some (for example if a wife earns more), but real wealth is not tangible.But don't take as a truth what they tell you, don't open to them your heart and soul even if they seem sincere to you.If you are attracted to arab guy just have a good time and move on like they do.
This is not definitive nor applicable to all men, but it is a standard.Submitted by Lilia (Russia), Mar 29, 2013 at Don't have serious relationship with muslim guys.I had experience and also know some girls who dated arab guys and I think that they are good only for fling, not for relationship. If you don't want anything serious have a good time with them, hang out, have romantic evenings, have sex, they are good at all of this.As the interview began, the host asked the Muslim guest whether he was married. The radio host pressed home the point, saying that the guests first statement was a little misleading, wasnt it? Then, if I recall correctly, the radio host sensed his guests unease and changed the subject. Beyond any doubt, Islam is patriarchal, so a Muslim man must have final control in the relationship.He replied that Islam is so open and tolerant that he is married to a Christian. However, the quick-minded interviewer asked him if Islam allows a Jewish man or a Christian man to marry a Muslim woman. This short article from a Muslim website, representing many others, says about religiously mixed marriages: It is not permissible for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim man. For example, Sura says that a husband may hit his wife, but no verse in the Quran says a wife may hit her husbandas if domestic violence in any form is acceptable.All subheadings are to be taken as general guidelines."A woman is married for four reasons, i.e., her wealth, her family status, her beauty and her piety.So you should marry the pious woman otherwise you will be losers (your hands will be covered in dust)." Narrated by Abu Huraira, in Sahih Al-Bukhari (Book , Marriage) It is acceptable and encouraged in Islamic culture to marry somebody with the same socio-economic background.People marry rich daughters of businessmen all the time.So I met this guy online, he was living in a city I was going to visit, we talked for a month on a daily basis and he seemed very nice and very dedicated to me. He looked european and came there from France, so maybe that's why I didn't get him us arab guy at first (berber in his case).I didn't really care much because I just wanted someone to hang out with.
