Why is our love forbidden?
My name is Yara, I am a 26-year-old Egyptian girl who has been with a European man for almost 3 years. I love him so much and we belong together. He is not a Muslim but he is a good person and he loves me like no one else ever has.
I love my religion but I don't understand how our love can be looked upon as a sin! My father is completely against the relationship of course, but I don't understand what I am supposed to do. I will not end my relationship and I don't believe I should turn my back on true love just because we don't share the same religion.
We are living in 2009, not the middle ages- would it better that I end this and marry some random Arab man who I don't really love but that is Muslim, when instead I could have true love with my soulmate?! Help me.
