There are certain customs that all Muslims are expected to follow, but since Islam is interpreted in many ways across many cultures, it is difficult to make sweeping generalizations.
The vast complexity of Islam is compounded by cultural variations among Muslims.
Muslims believe in One God and therefore live by a moral code they believe is set organically by Him.
All of the explanation below goes back up to the top.
One of those names probably looks less familiar than the others, and for good reason.
But for those who do, the experiences between the genders is often strained and stunted by well-meaning but traditional parents and communities.
Every race and ethnicity counts some Muslims among its number, and mosques have been built around the world where they absorb local marriage customs.
Well over one billion people practice some form of the faith, and a majority of the faithful put religion at the heart of how they live their lives.That makes them a difficult, but not impossible challenge for an outsider.The journey to success with a Muslim girl is often challenging but can be a rewarding one.Muslims account for over twenty percent of the population of the world and more than that fraction of prime-aged girls.For religious and cultural reasons these girls tend to be quite inaccessible to outsiders and often have their romantic and sexual choices restricted or simply made on their behalf.The reason for this is that Muslim priorities are long-term and originate from God.Of course anyone else who is looking to settle down will have that in common with Muslims. Significantly younger and more diverse than the public as a whole, young religious Muslims straddle two worlds. Young Muslim Americans aren't exactly dominant in the mainstream dating conversation, and that's because "dating while Muslim" is its own unique, oft-misunderstood reality.The messages young people get can go so far as to warn that "seemingly innocuous email exchanges or online dating could topple one off the Islamic path if one lack[s] vigilance." The takeaway for religious young people is that they should marry, but they shouldn't actually date to get there.At a Muslim "speed dating" event in 2006, Imam Muhamed Magid of the Adams Center summed it up this way: "Don’t talk to the Muslim girls, ever, but you are going to marry them.As with any other religious group there is a high level of variation between individuals within that group.These points should only be seen as tendencies to look out for and warnings of what to be prepared for, not as certainties.Yet, things like physical connections outside of marriage, 'experimenting' or having a 'fling' don't exist in Islamic ethics.
