Should i convert to Islam or stay a Christian if i want to marry a Muslim?

I am thinking maybe so far...

Muslims, Jews and Christians worship the same God of Abraham. You need to decide what YOU believe and discuss what is important for you and your mate. If religion is a big deal in your lives and your futures you need to decide together what will make your family function smoothly.

Why cant you stay a christian? If his faith requires you to change.... then that just make you his property and you dont have a say in your own life anyway. I would look into the Muslim religion deeper and how devout a Muslim is he anyway?

I wouldn't give up my Christianity to marry anyone! A Christian should marry a Christian! You need to talk to your pastor! You are about to make a huge mistake! Stop and think!

Boy that's a bit narrow minded. If these folks love each other, they should build upon that, work out their religious differences as they go if that can be done. Love thy neighbor as thyself, unless .....they don't believe as you do?

Eventually, we will all need to be simply "humans from earth" not Americans, not Syrians, not Christians, not Muslims.

And you know something, shelia? A human can marry another human. Your artificial borders are meaningless.
Report as
That's pretty bigoted, Sheila. How is this statement of yours any different than saying white people should only marry white people?
Report as
It's not as overt, maybe?

I read my Bible and I know what it says about this issue. I stand by my first comment.
Report as
So as long as you back up your bigotry with scripture that makes it okay?
Report as
shelia, you know what you interpret your Bible as saying. The scary thing is that interpretation varies wildly person to person. And each of these people (including you) feels justified doing whatever they think the Bible is telling them to do. They each feel God condones (even appreciates) their biases.

Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes unto the Father except through me." Your soul cannot be saved through Islam. Jesus is the only way.

If you were saved in God's eyes to start with, but then fell in love with another person, and God decides you LOSE your salvation for marrying them? Don't you see how petty and awful your God is??

This is not about marrying him nimrod. It's about CONVERTING TO ISLAM!!! Read the question!!! You're sorry!! :)

Ah, insults. Name-calling is both childish and rather against the morals your religion claims to espouse.

"Claims" being the operative word.

Muslims worship the same god as Christians do.

Not only that, but Christians and Muslims fall in love with each other all the time. It'd be even more often if they weren't such self-segregating populations.

Not over anyones head Noveltman.... My point is.... You have a religion that you believe and worship. Why change religions for someone?? I dont understand that part. Why cant the one practice one religion and the other practice the other?? Why convert your beliefs?? THAT is the part that doesnt make sense.

Your relationship with God is between you and God. The true question is, do you accept Jesus as Christ the Messiah, or a prophet? I pray God gives you the guidance you seek, and for you to have the ears to hear that guidance, the eyes to see that guidance, the wisdoms to know that guidance, and the strength to adhere to that guidance. All I will say is, I don't believe I would sacrifice my convictions for another. God bless.

Is loving someone who isn't exactly like you "sacrificing your convictions"?
Report as
We must remained contextual. She asked about marriage. Marriage is more than love. So to answer your question, no we do not have to sacrifice our convictions to love. As a matter of fact, one of my convictions is to love all regardless. We must break ourselves from the happily ever after mindset, and realize these are vows (something that is never to be broken!). Marriage is commitment, work, giving, taking, caring, living, battling, laughing, crying and much, much more; all in the name of love. She asked about abandoning her beliefs for another person; As I stated before, I believe it is between her and God. God bless.

If your a Christian you should know what the Bibles says about this. Don't give up your Salvation for someone here on earth. If they are willing to convert to Christianity then I suggest you find someone else. God has the right person for you out there somewhere.


2 Corinthians 6:14


14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?

The Bible tells us to not be unequally yoked! Think about it, to fellowship with the Creator of the Universe, or get married to some person?

1. Happiness all happiness in Islam.
2. I am a Muslim and I advise you to read about Islam and the Koran before marriage.
3. Pray to God to guide you to the right path.
4. I wish you happiness, whether married or not.

A devout muslim wont marry a Christian unless they convert and a true devout Christian wouldnt even consider conversion a possibility. If your partner isnt devout then theres no point thinking about it and you sound as if youre a Christian in name only and dont actually have a relationship with Christ/God or you wouldnt even THINK of denying him by converting to Islam (Muslims dint believe Jesus is son of God or Christ) so all in all i dont even know why you bothered to ask.

You do not need to be of the same faith to marry and have a good life.

Hubster is Protestant and I am atheist. We have been together for over 25 years. Not once has there been an argument about religion and it has never gotten in the way of anything in life.

Marriage is between two consenting adults...not your faith (or lack of faith).
Faith in each other is what's required.

If you decide to convert, convert because you fell in love with Allah (God of Abraham), not a boy.

it is allowed for a Muslim man to marry a Christian or Jewish woman if she was virgin ...

Allah says :

( 5 ) This day [all] good foods have been made lawful, and the food of those who were given the Scripture is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them. And [lawful in marriage are] chaste women from among the believers and chaste women from among those who were given the Scripture before you, when you have given them their due compensation, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse or taking [secret] lovers. And whoever denies the faith - his work has become worthless, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.
