Those of us who don't leave in Islamic countries,can find ourselves in some very hard situations because i've come to realise that it's much easier to be completely true when ur in an Islamic enviroment or amongst muslims.
Is it wrong to have the hopes that someone your dating(non-muslim male)can revert to Islam,and you work towards it. yes,I know the rule is dating too is not permitted,but what do you do when you cant help it though you can keep urself away from the acts that will be fornication,I believe there is a woman during the life of the prophet who said a man that wanted to marry her should become a muslim(think I read it somewhere)and he did.
someone should say what they think,cuz one gets quite confused sometimes,u feel what ur doing is so wrong.

Hey Salaam...

You're right, it's not easy being a Muslim - especially in the modern age where the challenges to our faith are numerous.  It is, like you said, harder when you expose yourself to an unIslamic environment.  That said, it's not just for people living in non-Muslim countries.  Harboring that Islamic environment is something all of us have to strive to create in our own worlds, no matter where we live.  We have to seek good company ... this means that we have to search for it, and fight to maintain it. 

Is it wrong to have the hope that anyone will become Muslim?  Of course not.  That is the only duaa we are legitimately allowed to make for our non-Muslim families and friends - that of hidayah.  Is it wrong to work towards it? No, not unless it is compromising your faith in any way. 

You already said it yourself - not only is dating wrong, but if you're female, then marrying a non-Muslim is not allowed. 

You know... making an effort to safeguard your faith and to remove yourself from sin, will open doors for you that you never imagined.  Allah swt knows how difficult it is for you, and He is waiting for you to ask Him for help.  As soon as you do, your life will change inshaAllah.  And always believe in the power of duaa... you never know, the person in question may be moved by the fervor of your faith - and that may lead him/her to the path of Islam.  And maybe you both will live happily after.

I'd never want someone to change their religion or become something they truly aren't just to marry me.
And would one ever really know if the man became Muslim just to marry you or cause they
in their heart of hearts truly believed in Islam?
