Dating in muslim world
Forget Stereotypes The first thing to do is to drop any preconceived notions you have of Muslims.At the present time Muslims are not getting the best press, and this is of course due to extremism.This might sound highly bleak for many Western women and be highly off putting.However although Islam highly stresses the importance of conformity and is generally one of the most devout religions in the world, the extent to which your partner wishes to follow the religion will still come down to the individual particularly if they were raised in the West.Another important point though is that while Muslims are allowed to date non-Muslims, they are told to date 'women of the book' meaning Christians or Jews.It is expected for there to be a shared belief in a single God, though this will depend again on the personal discretion of the man.Recognise that the views of Muslim extremists do not reflect the views of other Muslims, and most Muslims are extremely peace loving men.Mohamed Ali for instance was Muslim, and this is why he opted to be a conscientious objector during the war (and subsequently was stripped of his title).
