I have came to know of a convert Muslim sister that is looking for marriage. After speaking to my mother about getting married to this convert who is of Hispanic origin, my mother was quick to shoot down that suggestion because she is not of “our” culture.
I’m 19 years old college girl. I have met this guy on a social website. I wasn’t planning to make a relationship with him or something, he was just asking me about Islam and to explain some verses for him. He is a good muslim religious person. After a while, he asked me to marry him because he wants to have islamic family not affected by the American culture, he said I’ll come to ur parents and propose according to the islamic civility and I’ll do whatever they want just to show them that I’m a good person who deserves their daughter and I totally agreed.
Sometimes I have suicidal thoughts but I can’t kill myself due to Islamic reasons. But lately the articles I read state the acceptance of committing suicide in state of mental disorder or depression (Allah knows best), so it got me really thinking. I’m still praying thank God, and still do not lose complete hope in Allah.
I am married, and was married once before. My ex husband was evil to the core. I have a metal plate in my neck as a daily reminder of how evil he can be. When I finally escaped him, and he was in prison for trying to kill me, I came back to Colorado and spent the next 5 years doing everything I could to try and understand how I became such a victim? Before him I was so independant, even hard I guess.
I am an American and converted to Islam about one year ago. I’m a divorced mom and met my “husband” about 6 months ago. We are in a mut’ah marriage which only his brother who lives here and some of his friends here know about.
I thought I found the perfect potential spouse who is also interested in me. However, his parents want him to marry a Pakistani, and wouldn’t even consider me because I’m white.
I do not know if this is something wrong, but any time I say something to my husband he gets angry, for example he asked me if his trousers are dirty( to judge if they are dirty) I said I do not know, I did not think that my answer was rude?
Have I been rude Is there any book in Islam that talk about good marriage communication?
I fell in love with a muslim guy from another country. We knew each other for a year, and there was a lot of love between us but no sexual intercouse. Im 18 and he is 30. We really respected each other. But when my parents found out my father put me in such a position that I had to choose either him or the guy.
There is a man I would like to get married to, but his ethnicity is causing my parents to reject him. Of course, Islam is a religion that should break all barriers between races. But cultural traditions and expectations are considered important in my country. My parents have cursed him and abhor him because of the country he is from.
I am in love with a very respectful muslim man. We really want to get married and my family was approving. Now that they know he is black, they don’t even want me to talk about it. He is so tired of waiting and wants us to be together no matter what. At the same time, I don’t think he is willing to wait for me any longer to get intimate.
