in response to reader comment: Muslim marry non muslim?

Submitted by ahmadzafire (United States), Nov 21, 2009 at 08:07

Islam only allows to marry Christians and Jewish but not the others (Hindu, Buddhism or twosome, Kong Fu tub, atheist, etc). Why? The Quran tells Muslims that we can marry people of the book meaning Christians and Jews because they too believe in one true God as do Muslims. But it doesn't mean you have to change their religion for the Quran tells Muslims to let the Christians and Jew practice and believe in what they will cause they too are God's children. Now as for me, I believe that we are all God's creation and many take the Quran and Holy scriptures out of contacts including myself...but all faith claim peace within and just because we all don't have the same belief, we do have the same goal and that's peace for mankind. So I see nothing wrong with it as long as the other person can understand your faith and respect one other.

That is the fact of how racist is Islam way of marriage?

Look please...I'm a open minded person and do understand your frustration. But it's so easy to point the finger at one group even when others, maybe your own does the same. Listen I believe no religion is racists but man have corrupted all. Not one person is born to hate or be racists but this is taught. Islam permits marriage to other faiths but what about Catholic??? Being that I've grow up in a Christians community ...roman catholic to speak. You must marry another catholic or the church don't recognize it.

Submitting....
