I (a Christian) have been dating a Muslim girl for about 4 years.
Her dad is a Muslim and her mum is a Catholic.
She hasn't told her parents about us because she is concerned about 'breaking up the family'.
From my understanding of the Qur'an there shouldn't really be a problem.
The 2 verses of interest are 2:221 and 5:5.
I read a post about this here http://www.understanding-islam.org/r...estion&qid=599
which saysHowever, a different view is expressed here http://islam.about.com/blinterfaith.htmThe case of a Muslim woman marrying a non-Muslim man - except that of prohibiting polytheist men for them - has not been directly covered in the Qur'an . One may hold the opinion that by permitting marriage between Muslim men and Jewish and Christian women, the Qur'an has also permitted marriage between Muslim women and Jewish and Christian men.
This appears to come down to interpretation.Under no conditions is a Muslim woman permitted to marry anyone but a Muslim man. (2:221) mentions, "Nor marry your girls to unbelievers until they believe. A man slave who believes is better than an unbeliever...."
What is defined as an unbeliever?
= Not a believer?
What is a believer?
= Someone of the book?
After all, we are all branches of the same tree.
i.e. decendents of Abraham.
Can you see an issue with us getting married?
