Interfaith dating islam

And while interfaith meetings and classes of Muslims and Christians are fairly common in sub-Saharan Africa, few Muslims in other regions participate in such gatherings.

Few Muslims see conflict between religious groups as a very big national problem.

Do not marry idolatresses until they believe: a believing slave woman is certainly better than an idolatress, even though she may please you.

And do not give your women in marriage to idolaters until they believe: a believing slave is certainly better than an idolater,even though he may please you...

A brother commented here about it depending on the guy's religiousity.

That's not the case (it is at least rarely the case). The levels of which depend on how much you interact with each other (to interact with the opposite sex in any sexual manner is haram.

And few believe Islam and other religions have a lot in common.

You may be surprised even if he's against dating.

Quran 1 when newly converted Muslim women abandoned Mecca for Medina.

When the Prophet asked Allah if the refugee Muslim women should be returned under the terms of the Treaty, Allah said no because their marriages to idol worshippers were void...you are sure of their belief, do not send them back to the disbelievers: they are not lawful wives for them, nor are the disbelievers their lawful husbands..do not yourselves hold on to marriage ties with disbelieving women.

So that being said, you know the society you live in. I think your best bet is to just ask him questions like “what are your views on dating” “how would you react if your family told you not to see/marry a girl” etc.

(obviously be more tactful than I was in those examples haha).
