    Yes, I know. What I mean is that some people, despite knowing the rules, do not practise/follow the rules (like me, ashamedly or unashamedly, depending on the situation). I personally don't see the issue with marrying a non-Muslim, monotheistic person since essentially (I believe), the person believes in the same God but follows a different path to connect with God.

    I know most Muslims don't hold the same view, like my parents, but it depends on the subjects point of view.
    Haha I completely understood your point.

    Tbh I think its up to people. If you're religious, marry within your own religion, if not, then don't restrict yourself.

    And what?! Your parents are Muslims?! I always thought you were Hindu?

    It was sarcasm, considering how low the probability is that he will succeed in persuading her/her family.

    Anyway, under what authority are you to say she will go to hell?
    My sarcasm detector not too good today. Sorry!

    I'm not making a definite ruling on her or anyone. I am simply commenting on the hypothetical scenario of someone committing major sins like zina on an every day basis. It is very likely they will go to hell.

    Like my thread said before. I'm a Sikh guy and I'm going to ask a Muslim girl.

    Just wondering if any other Sikhs would be open to do the same. Just wondering.

    Actually our holy scripture doesn't mention anything about us not being allowed to marry Muslims, or any non-Sikhs.

    Who told you that anyway?
    Well I don't know about scriptures but Guru Arjan dev Ji was killed by muslims, there were disturbing paintings of his death in our old Gurdwara.

    My mum who is very religious told me.

    And that is very true. He was executed by Jahangir.

    I don't see why all 1.6 billion+ Muslims should be held accountable for that.

    And I really don't see that as a reason to not marry a Muslim...

    A Muslim man can marry a Muslim, Christian or Jewish woman but a Muslim woman can only marry a Muslim man.

    From a Sikh's perspective. You can't represent all Sikhs.

    Well mixed-religion marriages are frowned upon in Sikhism. Remember that gurdwara incident awhile back? (The christian man and the Sikh girl).

    I didn't say that -___- Did I say that? Did I say I was representing all sikhs? Do you think I can possibly represent all sikhs?

    Ugh I hate TSR sometimes

    Obviously I was talking from my perspective, back to when I was very religious, the answer would have been a definite no.

    Nope, lol! My family is Muslim! What made you think I was Hindu?

    And yes, although when you say 'religious', it's open to interpretation. My view is quite unorthodox, or liberal, which most would disagree with. I think if you're truly religious and understand the complicated, deeper and transcendental stuff in Islam, you can see Islam in everything, every religion (well, maybe not every religion, but most monotheistic religions) becomes a path to the worship of that one God, every law around you (whether it be a scientific law or a parliamentary law, or whatever) shows evidence of the religion you follow. But then again, this isn't something I've completely experienced and is a view formed by those I look up to.

    They may be frowned upon by some Sikhs, but it isn't frowned upon in Sikhism, as there is no scripture evidence to support that claim.

    And nope I don't remember that incident. Personally I feel that people can make things work by putting in the effort and tolerating the spouse's religion.

    For example, I'd be open to celebrating Eid, visiting the Mosque, eating the Pakistani food etc.

    It's a rule, but not necessarily followed by all. I know a Muslim that got married to a Hindu. Look at Shahrukh Khan.
    Yeah. Majority of muslims don't follow majority of the rules. They pick and choose. But it's not considered valid by any muslim. Muslims do it because they abandon their religion.

    I'd be disowned. Wouldn't be interested anyway, not a huge fan of Islam's core principles.

    1. Disowned? That's sad to hear.

    2. Not interested. It's never a good idea to say that just in case you meet someone.

    3. Not a huge fan? If you look at the reality the core principles are the same.

    Well it's frowned upon if you want the Anand Karaj ceremony. Idk about the scriptures, nor do you most likely as I doubt you've studied the Guru Granth Sahib Ji in depth. So you can't really claim it's not frowned upon in Sikhism.

    I would show you a clip but I cba to find it.

    Good for you, if that is what you want to do! It's not about "tolerating" it's about acceptance. You have to accept another persons beliefs, possibly even disregard your own in the process which is why I could never marry a Theist/ Diest, my beliefs hugely contrast with theirs.

    Interfaith is worse because you both believe in God, but can they both be right? (which is mostly why I'm an atheist...)

    But if your willing to make it work, I'm sure you can, you just can't expect both families to be okay with it because they won't.
