Dating restrictions on muslims
Thus, a 'date' for Muslims is transformed into a Halal date.
Falling in love is definitely not prohibited and it would be absurd to attempt to restrict human nature to such extent because concept of family is highly important in Islamic culture therefore two individuals who are making such critical choices that will affect rest of their lifespans should be comfortable together and LOVE each other.What people here in Britain call dating, Muslims prefer to use 'courting'.And while a date is usually focused on 1) Sex 2) New encounters and 3) Good times, Islamic courting has different priorities altogether.They're not really modern or cultural, they are ingrained in the Islamic law system.Such goals also ensure that a couple really serious about getting together understand just how important their relationship is in their faith.Remember the ultimate Muslim belief: there is One True God Who creates love and unites people.
His laws on interaction and dignity are priority throughout. There is no engagement in Islamic law, as understood by popular culture.
The marital contract is the Nikah and no Islamic marriage is valid without it.
There are no set rules for how to do this, it can be a small affair a week before part 2 (explained) or on the same day as the Walima. It all begins with Islamic courting and ends with a wedding party.
The reason for this is that Muslim priorities are long-term and originate from God.
Of course anyone else who is looking to settle down will have that in common with Muslims.
Part 2: The big party afterwards is a public announcement known as the Walima, catered and sponsored by the husband. It's not supposed to be costly but it is supposed to be joyous and open to all.
