Christian dating muslim man
My boyfriend, who is also an atheist was born into a Christian family," a 25-year-old female who spoke under the condition of anonymity said.Coptic Christians in Egypt are known to often be very religious, holding tightly to their faith.
In 2013, a Muslim man and five others were killed in Menya while five homes burned to the ground because of a romance that erupted between a Muslim girl and her Christian neighbor.Interfaith marriages nevertheless need to be widely discussed because for starters, ignoring it doesn't resolve the issue.Secondly, it's happening and thirdly, most importantly, there is nothing wrong with it.In the Islamic law, if a Christian woman ends up marrying a Muslim man, their children would grow up to be Muslims and Muslim women cannot, under any circumstances, marry a non-Muslim man because the children will take the father's religion.Another argument also stems from a Islamic religious point of view.The younger generations are divided on this subject but tend to keep their views to themselves.
It is simply a topic not commonly discussed and many people are not very receptive.
For example, if a manager of a company is a "religious" Muslim, he'll play favorites and could easily fire a Coptic Christian for little no reason.
This discrimination that's been going on for the last few decades has strengthened Christians bonds and added to the ostracism of anyone who leaves the community.
So, if it is accepted, like your situation, it should never be a matter of criticism.
What could bring shame to any Muslim man, and I believe to any man whosoever, is not to marry a woman from a different religion.
Rather, it would be to marry a woman whose behavior degrades him or who does not have respect for him or for herself, no matter what religion she belongs to.
