It is permissible for a Muslim man to marry a Christian/Jewish woman strictly under these two conditions: Why is marriage allowed in only one direction? Likewise you are permitted to marry chaste believing women [Muslims] or chaste women among the people who were given the Scripture [Jews and Christians] . It may be true that Muhammad at first respected Judaism and Christianity, but he turned against them later on in his life, as seen in this article and this one.
Maybe seventh-century Arab culture will answer this question. So this means that in seventh-century Arab culture a Muslim man may dominate his wife or wives, but not a Christian man who would dominate his Muslim wife.
I'm a christian woman who has been dating a Muslim guy for a year.
His parents are very religious and recently he asked me to convert to Islam.
He can’t make his parents see that he loves me so much and that I’m a good girl. How can you solve problems when you can’t even have a discussion ?
Also I can’t help him and talk to them, because he said that it’s not allowed to bring a woman/girl into his parents house. Didn’t Allah create people so they would know one another ?
As the interview began, the host asked the Muslim guest whether he was married. The radio host pressed home the point, saying that the guests first statement was a little misleading, wasnt it? Then, if I recall correctly, the radio host sensed his guests unease and changed the subject. Beyond any doubt, Islam is patriarchal, so a Muslim man must have final control in the relationship.
He replied that Islam is so open and tolerant that he is married to a Christian. However, the quick-minded interviewer asked him if Islam allows a Jewish man or a Christian man to marry a Muslim woman. This short article from a Muslim website, representing many others, says about religiously mixed marriages: It is not permissible for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim man. For example, Sura says that a husband may hit his wife, but no verse in the Quran says a wife may hit her husbandas if domestic violence in any form is acceptable.
Therefore, Christian women must be careful about marrying Muslim men.
If a Muslim woman marries a non-Muslim man, knowing the ruling thereon, then she is a zaaniyah and is subject to the hadd punishment for zina.
If she was unaware of the ruling, then she is excused, but they must be separated, with no need for talaaq (divorce), because the marriage is invalid in the first place.
