Peace be on the followers of guidance,

All praise be to Allah.


If you are not Muslim, and you are married to a Muslim man, then what I advise you is to learn about Islam, and earnestly search for the truth, and open your heart to the religion of truth.

It may be a blessing from God that He married you to a Muslim, a noble follower of truth, as revealed by God, so that God could show you the path to success in the afterlife.

Islam is the religion taught by Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad, peace be upon them. 

Its main belief is that Allah (God) is One, and we devote all our worship to Him alone.  Allah is Just, Merciful, Loving, Wise, and Perfect.

We follow Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, since his teaching has reached us in its pure authentic form, and since he is the final messenger, his message abrogates the previous scriptures and teachings.  There is no Prophet after him.


If, however, you do not choose to embrace Islam, then be aware that you must respect your husband's religion, and not interfere with his practice of his faith.  You should not influence him to follow your religion or religious holidays.

You must also be prepared to raise your children as Muslims, and it is not permissible to teach them Christianity.  In order to do this, you will have to learn about Islam yourself.

Finally, there may be certain practices in your religion, such as drinking alcohol, eating pork, or displaying religious icons, that will cause harm to your husband, and you should avoid them.  In case of any conflicts, you should refer to an Imam, or Islamic scholar, to work out your differences.


I do hope and pray that you will learn about Islam, and that Allah guides your heart to embrace Islam and become our sister in faith.  Ameen.  Please do not hesitate to ask any more questions that you may have.


And Allah knows best.

peace be upon you

If the Muslim lady wants to live by her religion, marrying a non-Muslim is disallowed to her. In the present Western (or other non-Muslim) societies, even a male Muslim has to be very, very, careful in chosing a non-Muslim wife.

I know because when I was in the West, I looked at myself, at the society I was living in, and the trends therein, and decided that going alone to Hell was enough worriso,e thought, let alone dragging one's children along there. So I decided not to marry.

I think if a bro gets married in America he has to marry a Muslim. (Morally and Ethically- I know Islam gives the option)I have never seen a mixed religion marriage result in children continuing on with Islam as their way of life.

Ok If I understand correctly, she's a Muslim American convert and he's an Egyptian Muslim who moved to the US? Well what problems would you have you ask... probably the normal one's every couple has plus some cultural type things that need getting used to. But I think you should be fine inshaallah. Keep Islam as your focus and priority and try to be open-minded about both american and egyptian cultures. Keep your friends diverse and do all the things that help marriages get stronger and you should be good.  bebzi

If at all possible...
See how he treats you when the both of you are with his people.
The above poster is right. If he follows Islam and not 'hislam' or a cultural Islam- evrything will work out.
