I am wondering if you will be able to give me some advice on a problem of mine. I live in the United States and I have many friends who are Christians. Some of these friends are males. Recently, my feelings for a male friend have grown deeper. I feel I am falling in love with him. It is at the point where I want to marry him, since he also has feelings for me.However, I do not want to commit anything that is against Islam. Why is it okay for men to marry Christian women yet Muslim women are not allowed to marry Christian men? That is what my parents have told me. I don't know what to do. Can you please give me some assistance?
As-salamu `alaykum, I am a non-Muslim US woman, baptized as a Christian. I was divorced from a Sunni Muslim Jordanian-American man. the divorce was his choice; he is younger, and he decided that he wanted children a few years after marriage, and I was unable due to my age. Now I would potentially be interested in marrying my ex-husband's uncle. he is a single, practicing Sunni Muslim living in Jordan and is about my age. Is this permissible in some way according to the law of the Qur'an or would it be haram for him? Does it make a difference that I am not a Muslim and my former marriage was civil (not held in a religious ceremony)? Jazakum Allahu khayran
Assalam AlaikumWhat does Islam say about the relationship between fathers and daughters? My dad is a very effectionate person but his excessive kissing and hugging makes me uncomfortable. He thinks its normal to tickle me or my sister?s backs or tummy or thighs from underneath our cloath. I have tried countless times to explain that I dislike it and that I don?t think it?s proper. He does not agree and continues to joke around in this manner with my little sister (who is almost 13) in this manner.I would also like to add that my father likes to wear boxer shorts at home which are rather tight and show the shape of his private parts. Is this acceptable?Please advise.Thanks.
