Dating usa sex for muslims
Filza Satti and Obaid Akram have been married for more than a year.They met on a website for Muslims who want to take part in “halal dating.” Halal dating is a way for Muslims to learn about one another to decide if they want to be married, while at the same time observing the beliefs of Islam.Many more share their fears and apprehension about seeking out the existing resources and tools because of the shame and stigma associated with discussing sex and sexual violence in Muslim communities.
Despite this reality, there are no spaces for Muslims to seek information on sexual health and sexual violence in a way that is free of judgment, is empowering, and considers cultural and religious context.
You do find halal dating amazing as you’re young and are attracted to the opposite sex, (but) it’s more like a fun thing...” Meeting other Muslims on a website and then taking part in halal dating is new.
But Satti and Akram believe this is the way most Muslims will meet in the future.
When Muslim men and women date one another, it is with the intention of marrying one another or deciding marrying.
As they are dating, they do not become physically intimate. And they must have permission from their parents or other older people to date one another. You'll find a lot of people there with different backgrounds and cultural values." Obaid Akram says he once supported so-called “arranged marriages,” in which family members bring a man and woman together to be married.
