My parents are pressuring me to get married by January, and I am worried about inviting Allah’s anger if I refuse to see or turn away certain men.

I can’t make my own choices

A while ago I met a non muslim girl who I befriended and we got along very nicely. Through me she got to know about Islam and she took real liking to it. After a while she said she would convert and we both wanted to get married. Her parents did not want her to convert, but left it to her to decide. convinced her dad that we shouldn’t get married.

I feel backed into a walI I’m thinking about suicide.

I’m a 20 year old young muslim man. My family is religious and i’ve grown up religious. I love god and hold true to my beliefs, and I want to do the right thing by it and have done my best to all my life. I am a student studying medicine. I recently about 4 or 5 months ago had to work with a muslim girl on a racial ethnicity project. This girl is really good, she’s religious, a great person, and from an awesome family.

Muslim Boyfriend Forced to Leave me by his Parents

My Muslim boyfriend and I have been in a serious and happy relationship for the past 1.5 years. I am a very decent Christian lady. I believe in marriage first before we can do anything (sexually). And he respected that. He treated me as a real lady and very gentleman towards me……

Married and seriously unhappy

I am a 27 year old muslim pakistani man been raised in the UK and went to pakistan to get married. It wasn’t actually an arranged marriage, I went there for vacation, met the girl myself and decided to marry her 3 months after meeting her without even an engagement.

I did it to make my parents happy as its exactly the type of girl they like and would want. She now lives with me in UK, and im soooo depressed. She is a nice girl, a doctor, she cooks cleans and cares alot for me. But there is something missing, there is no love from my side at ALL.
