non sexual dating as a muslimWatch
Secondly, may I ask why you are muslim in the first place? It is no coincidence that the majority of children follow the same belief system as the people they were brought up with, and so the children simply accept the belief, as they know nothing else or anything better. You need to realise that Islam, along with all religions, are man-made ideologies. There are a lot of reasons why these sort of belief systems begin, but are you seriously going to tell me that a book from 1500 years ago holds the answers to a universe that is 13.8 billion years old, according to science? You need to study the bigger picture, and explore all possible avenues with regards to your belief system. Do not blindly believe in something, and instead, take time to educate yourself on all of the possibilities on how the universe began.
