No email needed adult chat - Dating a muslim girl

This might sound highly bleak for many Western women and be highly off putting.

However although Islam highly stresses the importance of conformity and is generally one of the most devout religions in the world, the extent to which your partner wishes to follow the religion will still come down to the individual – particularly if they were raised in the West.

Another important point though is that while Muslims are allowed to date non-Muslims, they are told to date ‘women of the book’ meaning Christians or Jews.

It is expected for there to be a shared belief in a single God, though this will depend again on the personal discretion of the man.

Depending on how devout the man is, there are also many things to consider practically and there might be some sacrifices that you are not prepared to make.

All this should be discussed with your partner before the relationship progresses past a certain point.

Equality It is also important to understand that Muslim women are not quite regarded as ‘equal’ in the same way that Western women are.

Islam describes their position as ‘equal’ though not ‘identical’ but the reality is that the woman is expected very much to be obedient to the man.

Dating a Muslim is generally just like dating anyone else – a varied and unpredictable experience that can vary widely depending on the guy’s individual personality.

However it does mean taking on a very strong set of beliefs and a very different culture.

Heina Dadabhoy spent their childhood as a practicing Muslim who never in their right mind would have believed that they would grow up to be an atheist feminist secular humanist.
