  1. Hi.. I am a filipina and a muslim convert for about 2-3 months now. I had a saudi boyfriend before who asked me to marry him temporarily to which i agreed since i am in love with him. He keeps promising me that I am his only wife and that he wants our marriage to be a permanent one. Now im not sure if this man really loves me or not because my gut feelings are telling me there is something odd with our marriage. Yes he does spend time with me but only when he feels like being with me. But up until now, we have not met each others families and that he seems to be afraid to let his families know about me. i really need to gain back the peace of mind and i have been praying for clarity and guidance. May you please tell me more about how saudi men get married and how serious they can be about marriage with non-saudi women. Thanks..

    • Lyn, this man is using you for temporary companionship or sexual pleasure. He clearly has no intention of marrying you properly. In fact, he might already be married. Furthermore, Sunni Islam does not recognize the validity of temporary marriage. So in reality your relationship with this man is entirely invalid and inappropriate. I suggest you cut off your relationship and contact with him immediately and totally, as difficult as that may be.

      If you need further advice, please register and submit your question as a separate post, and we will answer you in turn, Insha'Allah.

      • To add up, lately he is wearing a silver ring on his right hand. He is not wearing that before but now, he never stop wearing them. Most men wear rings but with a stone on it, but for him its just a plain silver ring.

    • plz dont marry with us they are very strict laws plz you search another good person if you not known good saudi men

      • I concious why?because i have boyfriend pakistani men online fb he tell me that he loves me deeply he want to marry me and im only his wife he told me also that when we get married we lived his parents im afraid and nervous because ive try to believe also a muslim man before i love him somuch there are tyms that i give up my family friends and my country to come with him i believe his all sayings and promises because he is too sweet it comes to telling me something but when i not give him what he wants he easily left me and said to me he is not love me im too hurts that day.,but now i move on and there is another man showing me his love and he is muslim also from pakistan did i trust him?pls advice me.,

        • I think you are setting yourself up for yet another disappointment. There's the religious difference between you, the cultural difference, the geographical distance, and the fact that your entire relationship is (it seems) virtual, existing only online and by phone. You should end this now, rather than prolong it.

  4. To whom it may concern,
    I would like to ask.
    As a catholic, working in a part of middle east. I fell inlove with a muslim man. We are together for almost 4 yrs now. And plan to get married. But he dont want me to convert on a islamic religion. Because he is looking on other hand that full of my family is catholic.
    is there any possibility or opportunity for us to get married without me converting to muslim?

      The short answer is that, yes, a Muslim man can marry a practising Christian. However, there are many other issues to consider. I'd advise you to search our archives for other questions about Muslim - Christian marriage, and read some of the discussions there.

      You may want to find out more about Islam - even if you don't want to become Muslim yourself, if you are going to be living in a Muslim marriage and family, Islam will inshaAllah (Allah willing) be a major part of your life.
