    No because it's not allowed for a woman to do so and her marriage will be void.
    Any Muslim woman knows that.

    I really respect you for listening to your heart and not your parents. For not letting them influence you. You are one brave girl!
    thank you so much, aw. Sometimes you just know and I wouldn't change it for the world haha more people need to stand up to their parents if they have a gut feeling about something or someone. You cant spend the whole of your childhood going things you don't want to do.

    hi there, I strongly disagree with your opinion. I am a muslim woman and would much rather marry a non muslim because quite frankly I have seen the way SOME muslim men treat thei wives and I think it is disgusting. that's my opinion anyways

    Would you marry a non muslim if you loved them? And I mean if you truly loved them; you wanted to spend the rest of your lives together. Not just mere infatuation or lust.

    Also what would you think if the non muslim wanted to raise your kids as muslims but was not one themselves?

    I think that if you truly love someone, you should be able to be together, no matter what.

    No rude comments which are offensive please. Also nobody try to start a fight. I am just curious to know about this.

    Thank you in advance!
    Hm personally I wouldn't unless he converted.

    But if she can date you,then she shouldn't have am issue

    Well, the Quran itself doesn't explicitly ban it (marriage with people of the book, polytheists are off limits for both men and women) so go for it.

    It is not my opinion, but a ruling from Islam, in fact a ruling from Allah (SWT).
    Lol I'm sorry, but I think that's a silly reason. There are good and bad men from all religions or no religion.
    A good Muslim man will treat his wife well and if he doesn't, Allah will question him on the Day of Judgement for it.

    So many muslim men STILL do not treat their wives well. Also do not call her opinions or reasons 'silly'.

    that's is not the only reason. It is one of the main reasons though because pretty much every muslim man I know does not treat their wife the way they should . But obviously there are also other reasons behind my opinion but it is the main reason. Likewise I do not believe in some of the beliefs that Muslims have.

    Mr Hanwar above will disagree but do your own research then see how you feel. The general agreed view still forbids women from marrying any non-Muslim man.
    There are several reasons. One being that any child born from such a marriage would (apparently) take after their father (name, religion etc). Obviously in this day and age that's simply not true and usually the opposite seems to be the case since a mother is around her kids more.
    Another funny excuse I've heard is Islamic rulings wouldn't apply to the non-muslim husband so in the event of disputes or divorce it would be difficult (from a religious stand point) so sort out. If you live in a country like the UK that would really not be an issue but hey, the ulema disagree.

    Yes it does. Please research this before spreading around incorrect info

    “And give not (your daughters) in marriage to Al‑Mushrikoon till they believe (in Allaah Alone) and verily, a believing slave is better than a (free) Mushrik (idolater), even though he pleases you. Those (Al-Mushrikoon) invite you to the Fire, but Allaah invites (you) to Paradise and forgiveness by His Leave, and makes His Ayaat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) clear to mankind that they may remember”

    [al-Baqarah 2:221]*

    Generally the man is head of the household and the children will take after his religion.
    Ofc it's better for a Muslim man to marry a Muslim woman. Just because it's permitted for him to marry a non Muslim, doesn't mean it's preferred.

    Same can be said for other non Muslim men ?
    I believe it is silly since she's basing her opinion of 'some' Muslim men when there are plenty who are good Muslims.
