At Muslims4Marriage.com, we want you to be successful in all of your dating endeavors. Check out these six dating tips for Muslim singles.
Before you are ready to date, make sure that you are the person you would like your potential spouse to marry. Once you have gotten yourself together, pray to Allah and ask for guidance in choosing a dating partner.
2. Show Respect
Regardless of religion, it is always a good idea to be respectful and considerate of any cultural boundaries and traditions. Don’t assume that your date is willing to engage in behaviors or activities that go against the rules of tradition and culture. Get to know each other and get a firm understanding of her beliefs before taking your relationship to the next level.
3. Date in Public
Whenever you go out on a date with a woman, always go somewhere public. Remember, unsupervised dates are forbidden in the Muslim religion. Even though you live in a progressively forward culture where unsupervised dating is the norm, don’t forget the values, teachings, and rules of your religion.
4. Date With Marriage in Mind
Treat your date with the same courtesy that you would show your future wife. This not only tells her that you are serious about what you expect from the relationship, it also shows your date what a good Muslim marriage partner you will be.
5. Be Open-minded
The older Muslim women become, the harder it is for them to meet eligible Muslim men. Stay open-minded and be willing to look past a woman’s age. Age is not a great indicator of whether your date would be a great spouse. Instead, you should be more interested in whether she is true to the faith, respectful, and marriage material.
6. Family Involvement
Family involvement is vitally important in the world of Muslim dating. The strength and success of any potential relationship or marriage relies largely on whether your dating partner meets the approval of Allah and your family. Spending time with the family means there is less temptation to sin romantically and gives all parties involved more time to get to know each other.
