I've just finished reading the biography of the first Muslim woman who ever married a indian matrimonial sites in canada non-Muslim man. If you haven't read it yet, you need to do so now. The author, Fatima Al Qudsi, is an extremely eloquent, articulate and eloquent woman who has been the subject of a book, two books and a book-length essay by the British writer, Peter Tatchell. Her book is called Muslim Women: Marriage and the Marriage Contract. The book is an excellent read, and you should read it. You will learn a vivastreet pakistani lot about how Muslims view marriage, and you will also learn about why some of them don't.
Before I read the book I asked myself a question, which is: Is there any Muslim woman who doesn't see that marriage is about love and not about financial gain? She might look at this, and she might think she's right, but she's wrong. And it is important that women look at things from their own perspective, rather than taking someone else's perspective. It's a good lesson about the edmonton muslim power of the mind. But we have to do it with compassion and not prejudice.
In The World of Dina Santamaria, Marwan and Sajda discuss their marriage in more detail. Sajda writes:
"Dina was always a little uncomfortable with being a stay-at-home mom; her husband was a lawyer who had never been in a relationship before. When it became obvious that I had little interest in dating, he decided that it was muslims marriage not worth fighting for a divorce." (Emphasis ours). Marwan says: "But there was something I loved about her, something that, as a lawyer, I had been taught to take for granted: she made a really nice wife. She had the best job in the country, and she had a good job and a good house, and her kids were always very healthy." The husband, Marwan, had never had a serious girlfriend until he started dating Dina. She says: "My first girlfriend was a friend of mine from law school. I was so enamored with her that I was thinking about her as if she were a real person. And then she said, 'Marwan, I don't have any boyfriends, and she was like, 'Yeah, you're not a person.' " Marwan says he's not really sure what the women do for a living. "We never get any money," he says, "so it's always a big question in the back of my head." But Dina is a firm believer that the job in question is what she calls "the most beautiful and beautiful profession there is."
I first met Marwan at a restaurant in Islamabad called the Restaurant in the Clouds. It was a dimly lit restaurant, with black leather booths and glass-walled tables. As a girl, I had been a little jealous of the way that men could talk with each other, and when I walked in the door I saw that Marwan and his friend, the waitstaff, were sitting across from each other, at a little table, smoking cigarettes. As Marwan talked, I watched him and his friend sex dating bristol exchange a few words. The wait staff was wearing bright red pants and red socks; the guys were wearing black jeans. The only thing between the two of them was an open cigarette pack and a piece of plastic.
The waitstaff was a middle-aged man named Jibran, a Lebanese Muslim from Beirut. He had an imposing, slightly disheveled appearance, with bushy, white hair that was tied back and a black goatee. He was a friendly fellow who greeted me with a handshake. He spoke with an accent which was not very Lebanese, and he seemed to be from Morocco or something. I told him that I was writing this story and asked him if he could share his personal history with me. He laughed and said that he didn't really have much to talk about. The story ended with him sitting in the coffee shop, smoking a cigarette, looking at the menu while saying to himself, "If you ever go to a coffee shop in the future, ask this man to tell you about his life." At least it didn't end with me asking a random guy to give me his personal history. I told him about my father's side of the family, how my grandfather had been a fighter for the French against the Arabs in Morocco, when I was still a baby, and my grandmother, who had sweedish men been a teacher and who used to teach the kids in her class how to be good at math. I also told him about the family's history with Islam. He responded by saying, "I don't really know anything about that." He seemed really confused, as if he'd been thrown out of a religion class in high school. He also said he wasn't a member of any Muslim group. That was strange. I said, "Well, I do know a bunch of them. I met a couple of them while in college." He laughed and said, "I have no interest in being uae girls part of any group that isn't in favor of the values of Islam."
Then I said, "It's very sad to be honest. I do see some of the similarities." He was taken aback and said, "I don't see any of them." This was strange. I didn't think this guy was a Muslim at all, but I could see his eyes widen in concern when he heard that. It was hard to tell how much I was just joking when I said this.
I left his house after our brief conversation and headed to my car. I had been driving through a residential area where I had just parked the car in the lot. There was an elderly woman standing on the sidewalk who looked up from her newspaper and waved at me from her perch.
