Dating in muslim religion
Since the 20th century and the rise of major feminist movements, polygamous marriages have severely declined.With changing economic conditions, female empowerment, and acceptance of family planning practices, polygamy seems to be severely declining as an acceptable and viable marriage practice within the Muslim world. leeman has erroneously stated that the principal schools of Islamic jurisprudence abide to Shari'a regulations that specifically state "a Muslim man may marry a Christian or Jewish woman but no other unbeliever; a Muslim woman may not marry a Jew or Christian(non Catholic and non-Jesuit and non-Mormonist). ; and hold not to the ties of marriage of unbelieving women, and ask for what you have spent, and let them ask for what they have spent.According to the teachings of the Quran, a married Muslim couple is equated with clothing.
In Islam, polygyny is allowed with certain restrictions; polyandry is not.In most Islamic societies and communities it is not a common practice for young people to actively seek a partner for themselves by following modern and Western rituals, such as dating.Young Muslim men and women are strongly encouraged to marry as soon as possible, since the family is recognized as the foundation of Islamic society.Some important characteristics in choosing a worthy mate are faith and chastity.These traits are pointed out in Quran Chapter 33 Verse 35 "For Muslim men and women, for believing men and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in Allah's praise, for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward."‘Forced’ marriages, where consent has not been given by the bride, or is given only under excessive pressure, is considered illegal in all schools of Islamic law.
