    what do you mean intention in later life?
    she could die tomorrow, next week, next year.
    the sooner you wear it the better, she might not get that chance again

    not big issue?
    you know hijab is COMPULSORY right?
    its good you've studied islam for so long but come on, you should know the basics.

    looking muslim can include wearing hijab for women or having a beard for men
    Dont know where you get that from but you need to brush up on you research

    Hijab is NOT compulsory...

    Twice now I've ended up being friends with muslim guys I really liked. With the second guy, I fell hard, but he just wanted to hang out, watch netflix and go out for lunch every week and just wasn't really into me.
    There are many problems I'm facing right now. Firstly, I started uni this year (late I know) after realising I wanted to be a teacher. This means I'm surrounded by mostly younger guys. Also, I'm part of probably the smallest muslim ethnic group in the country, and as most prefer to marry their own race, it makes it hard. As I don't wear a hijab (cover my hair) I don't stand out as muslim. I'm also constantly told I don't look ethnically muslim.
    I'm lucky to have open-minded parents, who despite fasting 5 times daily, have said they wouldn't get mad if I don't marry a muslim guy (tbh I think they'd just rather not see me die alone as they know the problem I'm facing). I do however want to find a muslim guy to marry, but I'm starting to lose hope and become depressed. I turn down non-muslim guys I find attractive, but I fear I'll be alone forever
    Thanks for reading if you got this far
    Why does the guy have to be muslim? I don't understand. I can understand the ethnicity thing, people are attracted to their own race and that's fair enough. But religion is solely a personal matter and it should be left as the individual's choice. Not marrying someone solely because of their choice of religion is in my opinion racism.

    I have a similar problem. Generally I'm attracted to pakistanis, indians and bengalis but since I'm pakistani and I feel more immediate attraction to pakistani women. However, I converted from Islam and I'm now an atheist. My problem isn't that I haven't found people, it's that Pakistani and Bengali women always get put off when I tell them I'm not a muslim, it's always been the obvious elephant in the room with all my interactions with them. I've had women that were attracted to me and interested in me, but then slowly seemed to lost interest after me telling them I'm not a muslim.

    Religion should not come in between love.

    I'm female, so can't marry a non-muslim if I want to stay muslim. The no sex before marriage thing is gonna be a deal-breaker for 99.99999% of guys. It complicates things with how to bring up kids too.

    The no sex before marriage is a deal breaker for 99.9% of ALL guys, including muslims.

    With regards to kids, let them make their own decision when it comes to religion. I mean, most people are always born into a religion. Your child will have the luxury to make an informed decision.
