nadeem, if you are muslim, what are you doing on a christian web site? Just wondering. My God and alla are nothing alike.
---shira4368 on 1/11/12

I am a Muslim (which means submitting of will to God only).You have a lot of misconceptions about Islam. It is not a new religion, but it is a religion which God himself enjoined upon all prophets like Adam,Eve,Noah,Abraham,Issac,Ismael,Moses,Jesus,Muhammad,etc. Peace be upon them all.. The foundation of Christianity is based on "Trinity" but the word "Trinity" is nowhere in the Bible.infact Bible says "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: (Deut. C.6 V.4.)"
Also Jesus pbuh said "I can do of my nothing but the will of my father".Same is there in the Quran..
You christians believe in the Bible,you have 4 gospels. But where is the Gospel which was given to Jesus?
---Nadeem_Ul_Haq on 1/11/12

Well you're not supposed to.Islam is a very strict religion and false religion.Unless youre a very dominant person. I'm married to a muslim man for 14 years and were very happy. But our children are Christian and they know that islam is a false religion. Islam is a replica of the Old and New Testament. But he always celebrate Christmas every year eith us which he loves! He doesnt get along with his family only with mine which helps alot.But if someone is going to get married with a muslim you just have to be very strong on your faith and like I said be very dominant! Don't be like those women that are weak and very naive.

HI!i am married with a muslim man for 11years,and is a hellllll ....wich i can t describe you in words.
Be very carefull what you decide about mariage,because after little time past he is gona show you the rules of muslim man.
I don't say they are all the same but in general you don't have opinion or word to say in any way.
If you can handle this ....go on ....bat if you dream that you have the same life after .....i don't think so.
---ank on 10/23/10

Francis-- You have a point. There are numerous modern American woman who have married Muslim men in the United States, thinking that since they were not very religious and their Muslim mate seemed tolerant, they could find happiness.

After the couple has a child, he decides they should "visit" his family in
...Egypt, Jordan, Iran etc. They do. But the "visit" never ends. The husband reverts to his cultural roots. The wife becomes an oppressed, disrespected family member. She's prevented from communicating with family in the US. The child is raised a Muslim by his family.

A woman's compliant nature can cause her great trouble.
---Donna66 on 6/7/10

My point was, it is different when christian men marry none christian women. They woman do conform or at least they should conform since the man is the head of the home. Ot the priest in the home.

And i gave several text for that men including Joseph, Moses and any soldier who wanted a none jewish wife.
---francis on 6/7/10

I do not know the religion of Asenath or the Ethiopian woman. Were they even religious? Did they worship idols? Would they be just as happy worshiping the God of the Hebrews?

Islam did not exist in the days of either Moses of Joseph. But today it is a strongly anti-Christian religion.

Shane --Islam has no requirement to be truthful with an "infidel" (Christians and Jews). If you are really a Christian, not one in name only, the marriage would surly be a disaster...for you personally as well as for your faith!
---Donna66 on 6/7/10

Genesis 41:45 And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnathpaaneah, and he gave him to wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On.

Numbers 12:1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.

Deuteronomy 21:10 When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies..,

Deuteronomy 21:11 And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife, ..,
Deuteronomy 21:13 .. and she shall be thy wife.

Somehow or the other MEN are able to marry none believsrs. Is it because men are leaders of thier homes and dictate the religious practoice of the household?
---francis on 6/7/10

No. Marriages between people of different religions are bad. A prime purpose for religions is to act to defined differences between people and peoples where they don't really exist. Marriages between people of different religions may succeed because of the love of the two people involved and as a result the devisiveness and conflict caused by religions that should be generated and passed on to the next generation could be lost. Religious intermarriage could result in less hatred in the world, and weaken the the religions of adherents engaged in in such marriages.
---atheist on 6/5/10

NO you may not, unless your christianity is just something because you are born in England and you have English parents. (in other words then your not even a Christian).

can i marry a muslim girl, i am english christian , she in malaysain?
---chris_bullock on 5/31/10

I agree with what warwick said. I really wonder if the people on this site are actually christians at all. I was very happy when I found this site, but as I go through it I am afraid this is not where I need to be. No, I don't think a relationship between a Muslim and a christian is a good idea. If the person is a devout muslim, they will not marry you any way(with you being a christian).The Christian can not be a real true Christian or they would know not to marry outside the faith. Now, back to this site. I came here looking for christian friends,but when I got on the profiles and seen the pictures.It looked like some kind of trashy worldly dating site. Women not dressed modest. I believe there is a picture with someone with a drink in hand.
---angea4937 on 12/29/09

i believe GOD is big!
i also believe that what one person views, and what is right for them doesn't necessarily work for everyone.
Tamar, i believe that in your heart if you feel that its right and your not compromising your faith in anyway i believe that its between you and god to decide whether its right.
im currently with a muslim man, and when it comes to issues about god, neither of us comprise what we have with our relationship with god, if this was the case then i wouldn't think its right and i wouldn't be in the relationship.
when it comes to talking about our faith (religion) we always listen and respect the other, we openly discuss it.

but listen to god and seek gods wisdom and direction

"i am dating a musilm guy who have asked me to marry him,i am a christian, we both know about each others religion. i have deep feelings for him but something in me is not permittin me to accept his proposal. we both speak the same language but still we have difficulties in getting our point across. can someone explain this to me"
Yes, Shery, I can explain it. The terms and phrases you use to explain your faith sounds the same but the meaning is different.
You accept Jesus and so do the Muslims. They just don't accept Him as God or Savior.
You have experienced the tip of the iceberg. Marry this guy and you will receive the full wrath of his religion. Christians practice Christianity not religion.

Warwick you and Alan are correct in defining the terms. This is not the Bobby I heard mention how we are to define the terms. This Bobby needs to find the definition of the word love, because he says he loves that muslim girl. So the question to him is, Whom does he love more, his muslim girlfriend or God? He will choose who's love is more important. And Shery should also needs to indentify the terms of her commitment to Christ. She already feels she should not take the proposal, and that thought comes from her conscience, where the Holy Spirit works. To a believer, never go against conscience.
---MarkV. on 10/16/09

Thanks Alan. We definitely need to define our terms, otherwise things are somewhat meaningless.
---Warwick on 10/14/09

Warwick ... I remember tthat once I asked a man if he was a Christian, and his reply was ...

"Of course I am a Christian ... I am white and English"

It bears out your point
---alan8566_of_uk on 10/14/09

I believe the word 'Christian' is meaningless to some here. I wonder if those who say they are Christian only mean they have a christian culture but do not Follow Christ.

No Bible-believing Jesus-following person could marry a Muslim. Scripture says 'Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?' And surely Scripture, not our falible feelings, nor how nice the Muslim is, should decide what is right in God's eyes.

Any Musim cannot be by definition a Christian believer, therefore Christian/Muslim marriage is an example of being unequally yoked.

---shery on 10/13/09

Look i have respect for all religions and do not want to disgrace nor take lightly the fact that this is people's beliefs. In saying this i have a serious problem, i believe i am in love with a muslim woman. I would be considered a christian but do not practice. I live in her muslim contry. We both like each other very much, and i would just like to hear some views and advice on what to do. I would be willing to do anything it takes to be with her including converting. What steps should i take to be with this woman, and how would i make her family accept me? She is not a devout muslim but her family is. I believe in love and think it's possible to overcome any obstacle if two people are truly in love. Any thoughts are welcome, thank you
---bobby on 8/6/09

Tamar, you are on dangerous ground and using human justification for your passions. Trust God to lead you into what is after all a biblical institution.
What would your ministry look like as husband and wife if you are married to a Muslim.
I am sympathetic for loneliness or whatever else must be fueling your passion, but such choices have real consequences. Slow down.
I trust God, so ask your fiance to join you in prayer and seek the face of Jesus in this decision. Pray together nightly because prayer is ultimately agreeing with God and the fakers will eventually bug out.
To love God is to obey him.
If your fiance balks, run away as fast as you can.
---larry on 7/20/09

Anyone who does not believe that Jesus is God is not a Christian and should please stop deceiving herself
in Christianity, you do not make your own decisions because Jesus becomes not only your Saviour but LORD as well.

Not all that say Lord, Lord will enter into the Kingdom of heaven but those who obey the Father

Obeying includes not marrying a non-christian
light and darkness cannot get married that is what Jesus' command is

you are either a christian or you are not

I am a divorced christian woman. my x-husband was christian too and i lived in hell with him. I have one son from him, he even dont care about his son. Now im in love with muslem men, he is so good. He loves my son as if he is his son. He does everything to make me feel happy and stands beside me in any situation. He loves me as i am and respects me alot. So i think religion is not what makes a person but his kindness and personality. Im with my muslem lover the most happy woman on earth and im ready to marry him and stay with him all my life because he is a great person...
---Tamar on 7/11/09

All arguments aside: we know what the bible says on the matter (be not unequally yoked), HOWEVER, if you already married then you stay with this person. Can a christian and a muslim marry? Of course! SHOULD they? Not really. BUT remember, God is a BIG God and He can turn things around!

Whatever your situation, pray unceasingly! God will answer you with HIS will! You must be open to it! If you ask Him for the strength you need to remove yourself, then HE will give it!

God has a plan and a purpose - it is only up to us to DISCOVER it. He's really in control, so just believe, pray, and wait. Brothers/Sisters, that's all we can do. What a GOOD God we serve today!

I was married to a Muslim man from Cairo Eqypt. We had a warm, loving, caring marriage and would still be together if it had not been for 9/11. I loved him too much to see the way he was being treated after 9/11/ To this day, we still send emails back and forth daily.

if you are traditional christian through birth, and he is a muslim by name alone, no problem both your faiths are only luggage any way. yet if you love christ and his church, you an never marry someone who is member of a group that dedicates itself to destroy the memory of Jesus christ Emanuel.I read the coran and no good Muslim can ever let christians live acording their book. any muslim who compromises with christians in any way is worse then a pig and deserves to be killed. sorry it sound viollent but these are facts.
---Andy on 2/5/09

I believe that God loves Muslims and Christians alike. Remember that Abraham had two sons. God chose to bless them both. The Apostle Paul said: A man could be saved by his wife who is a believer in Christ. If God gives me a Muslim husband to love, I will love him and be his wife. The word of God says,"I will also bless the foreigners who commit themselves to the Lord. Who serve Him and love His name, who worship Him...and who hold fast to My covenant. I will bring them to My holy mountain of Jerusalem and will fill them with joy in my house of prayer...for the Sovereign Lord who brings back the outcasts...says: I will bring others, too, besides My people Israel(Isaiah 57:6-8)." Christ is my Lord and Savior and I love Muslim people:)
---Jewel_Opalenik on 1/11/09

Tish, the command is, "Do not be unequally yoked together with nonbelievers." Because a nonbeliever's heart is exceedingly kind is not enough, it is not enough to keep the second commandment of loving your neighbor as yourself, but also the soul must keep the first commandment and accept Christ and worship him as their Lord God in Spirit and in truth. For hell runs over with "nice" people who are idolaters and reject Christ.
---Eloy on 1/8/09

I'm talking to a guy who is a Muslim and his heart is so great. See, I dated a Christian for 3 years and the way he treated me compared to this new guy, was horrific! Not to say I ran into a muslim guys arm but he was there for me when I needed. He encourages me and accepts me as I am. Though I will never commit apostasy against Jesus Christ and I feel called to become a minister, It really sucks that Christians will never give me a chance because he is muslim but having met and been accepted by his mother, it goes to show how backwards Christians can be some time. We preach about accepting and then shun. I'm not sure about marriage as yet, God's will be done

I'm Muslim + my Father, mother=Christian.

Muslims believe in the same prophets as Jews & Christians e.g. Adam,Moses,Jonah,John(etc).Muslims regard Muslims, Jews and Christians as "people of the book" fellow believers of the one true faith.
---Amir on 12/17/07

We must not assume that all Muslims are racist, liars, or terrorists. There is good and bad in every religious group. We have had people be racist, lie, and terrorize others all under the name of Christianity. We do not have to downgrade people in other associations of faith in order to give God and Jesus glory. That being said, I think marrying a Muslim as a Christian could be creating your own personal stumbling block.

1) speculation???

Lori,I don't speculate.I only present the undisputed facts.It is a fact that Jesus did not speak the English language which did not exist during his lifetime on earth.It is a fact Jesus spoke Aramaic.The Aramaic word for God is Alah(AaLaH) and Alaha.Please consult and read any Aramaic glossary,dictionary or lexicon-concordance.
---Lari_S on 9/3/07

2) Since Jesus spoke Aramaic and not English, I will quote from the Aramaic Bible(NT). In Luke 6:12, Jesus prayed to Alah-Alaha all night long.

Luke 6:12 "And in those days, Yeshua retired to a mountain to pray, and he passed the night there, in prayer to Alaha."

Would you marry a false prophet or anti-christ? The two religions are completely incompatable. Muslims believe that they must kill infedels(nonbelievers of the Islamic religion)in order to maintain right standing with their God Alah. A Christian is definitely an infedel (non-believer of Islam). Our Christian Bible tells us to not be unequally yoked with a nonbeliever. This is not only a nonbeliever, he/she is the spirit of anti-Christ who we are to stay away from. Hope you make the correct decision.
---jody_martin on 9/2/07

Ahmed the bible states that we must not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. Unbelievers means absolutely anyone who is not a Christian. As you state, the reason that Islam allows Muslim men to marry non muslim women is because the female will then have to 'convert' and bring up all children as muslims. If she doesn't convert her life will be intolerable. If they allowed a muslim woman to marry a non muslim man they fear they will lose the next generation of children to something other than Islam.

No. Christians and Muslims should not marry. There is no common ground. When Muslims say that God has no son that totally closes the door. I think Jesus must feel left out with that attitude. The more I hear about Muslims the more I feel like a racist - and I do not want to be like that. God did say He loved the world so much that He sent His Son to die for it.

If you think you can marry him then convert him you aren't thinking clearly. He's going to see all your flaws and have a host of new reasons that Christianity isn't right based on those alone.

The differences in your religion will cause friction at the least.

You can marry a Muslim but it's a cheap imitation of the joy God intends for you to have in a Christian marriage.

I wouldn't settle for anything less then a Christian marriage knowing what I know now.
---Pharisee on 7/31/05

Yes, if the Christianity one is having is in "name" only. But if being a Christian is exercised in words and in deeds, I don't think that any Christian would ever think of marrying a Muslim. The belief systems are different from each other. Conflict could not be prevented to arise. No one in their right mind would want a marriage filled with conflicts.
