You’ve finally met the person of your dreams: good looking, successful, and has all the great qualities you’re looking for. It’s been an arduous journey to get here, and you’ve lost count of the number of people you sifted through to finally get here. But, despite this amazing match, there’s still one thing nagging on your heart:
They’re Muslim, but not practicing.
You face an internal dilemma: The search has been long, and it finally looks like it’s coming to a great end. But is it?
Should you marry someone who’s Muslim but not practicing?
The answer is a clear and resounding, no. “It’s not good news,” Br. Safi explained in Part 1 of our Why Marry? series. “When they start practicing Islam, then you might consider them. But for now, move on.”
As Muslims, worshiping Allah and being firm upon our deen is our number one priority in life, and that’s the most important thing we should be looking for in a potential spouse.
Join us at Dar-us-Salaam with Br. Safi at 11 AM next Sunday, October 22, for Part 2 of our series: How to Marry? We will be delving into what to look for in a spouse, the fiqh of Nikah and Walimah, and how to get, and stay, married.
Where: 5301 Edgewood Road, College Park, MD 20740
