    you said your parents are Muslim, but you haven't mentioned if you are.
    So the question is are you Muslim and will you follow what the prophet said and did?

    As a young Muslim you should know that you can marry out of your religion it is islamically permissible. However your spouse should firstly accept that your Muslim and agree to help you make a nice LOVING halal HOME for any children you may have. This does not mean she has to be Muslim if she doesn't want to!!! Although it will be a lot easier for both of you if she does convert.
    As the prophet said Islam is taught and learnt no forced!!!!!
    As for your parents you need to remind them that tradition and culture are not religion !!! Religion is what is mentioned in the holy books and by all the prophets.

    I hope the people on this thread who are telling you to tell your parents to shut up and p*** off aren't white, otherwise I'm not surprised your parents don't want you to marry into white culture.

    Im half Egyption and half Palestinian. My parents are not strict muslims but they want me to marry someone from my background. Im 22 and i want to get married to this girl, we have been engaged for 4 years now. Her parents are fine with it, i go to her mums house quite often. I argue with my parents everday about it. I know Im older enough to leave but i really want my parents at my wedding.
    Assuming you can't change your parents' opinions, you must choose. You can only keep one of them in your life. Your parents or your future wife. Once you make that choice, there won't be option to reverse it. So choose well.

    If their reasoning is that she is not Muslim/is white, tell them to STFU, because they clearly are just being backwards and racist
    What foolish advice, never ever should you say that to Muslim parents unless you want to be attacked or worse

    Actually, in Islam it is permissible for a Muslim man to marry a non-muslim woman. However it seems here this is not the case.
    I would suggest that you try your best to convince your parents that she is the 'one' and provide some undeniable evidence of some sort.

    However I would also say that most of the time, parents are right and you should be a little patient before making your next move.

    Only if the woman is a Christian or Jew. Also, Islam does not extend this courtesy to women.

    Can you imagine the outrage if it were white athiest (or even Christian) parents forbidding their kid from marrying a Muslim?

    Nothing but bigoted nonsense. People are people, regardless of their race or religion.

    S


    Are u a practicing muslim hummzy? I don't want to sound patronising but i don't think you have studied Islam very well. I am a practising muslim lady and have studied Islam quite a bit. In Al-Bukhari it states that a muslim woman is not allowed to marry a non-muslim under any circumstances. A man though is permitted to marry a non-muslim. He must treat her with the same respect and love that has been ordered for a muslim wife. Our prophet (pbuh) never forced anyone to convert to islam. Hence we are not allowed to force anyone to change their beliefs. Contrary to popular belief a man can marry someone from another religion. I sympathise with the parents but 99% parents do go along with thir childs wishes. I know you have been engaged for 4 yrs mayb giv it another yr and try to make your parents understand that its better for you to marry her then commit a big sin.
    I havent said anything wrong I havent put any quran ayahs against him it was a simple question its all about the individual themself and Allah is the judge of that. SO please do not tell me i havent studied Islam well were not perfect may Allah make us better people because we all sin differently.

    What religion does she follow?
    If she's Christian, there should be no problem in marrying her.

    I have got Muslim parents, and after months of showing them how little influence religion has over me, their use of Islam in arguments has decreased.

    Religion will only be important in a relationship if both people are extremely into their religion.
    I guess so.
