    Am I fool for keeping my distance and rejecting women?

    Report bad ads?

    I said earlier many beautiful women approached me and showed interested but to please Allah I kept myself at distance and was polite. There was one girl I was really attracted to who had an amazing character. She was beautiful and sweet. But she was nonmuslim and it's hard to marry a nonmuslim especially since they are so customed to date. I want to know did I miss out? Was I foolish in letting her go and resisting her. Did I make Allah happy by doing this?
    Jazakallah khayran...
    My main goal is to get to Jannah al firdaous and I'm worried I'm not able too. I want to be shaded under Allahs throne and be among the 70000 who go without being questioned...does my goal seem unrealistic?

    Re: Am I fool for keeping my distance and rejecting women?

    If they approached you alone, then no you aren’t foolish to keep your distance. There is a reason why we don’t free mix with the opposite gender and the fact that you, as a male, had enough patience to stay away from females who approached you is anything but foolish.

    As far as the second girl who you had interest in, try setting up a meeting between you guys and some family so you can talk about how important your beliefs are, as well as concerns regarding marrying a non Muslim and see how she feels about it.

    I have relatives who married non Muslims and it’s something I’d personally stay away from. Nothing against them personally, but it’s awkward and it never feels like they (spouse + their family) never truly accept it. Sometimes it has a negative effect as well where the Muslim ends up slacking on their beliefs and adopts / accepts the lifestyle of the non Muslim.

    If it's come to this, where you're severely depressed and contemplating suicide with one of your major troubles being not married yet, then maybe you were fool, you should have taken the opportunity to sort your life out when you had a chance

    That's ok bruv, I've been reading his posts for some time and being single has cotributed 75% to his current state. This is the current friction with his parents right now, them not getting him married yet

    Re: Am I fool for keeping my distance and rejecting women?

    What it means is, if you have a background of being depressed, mostly due to being single, why would you turn down offers to get married? If you're trying to stay away from women who show interest in you because you don't find their methods to be halal (ie. going out on dates, meeting each other alone, etc), that's one thing. But if you're trying to avoid getting married altogether, then it makes no sense to you current situation.

    If you are eligible and want to get married and have women who are potentially interested in getting married to you, wouldn't you find that to be better for you than staying single?

    Re: Am I fool for keeping my distance and rejecting women?

    Oh I see what you mean...no I'm staying away because these girls wanted to date and I was not interested in that. And marriage with nonmuslims in halal way is hard. It only works if Allah allows it. Besides i dont want my kids to be confused. I want them to grow in a perfect Islamic household where they can learn everything. Its frustrating that I'm saying haram is so easy but I'm trying to stay away so I can marry in halal and have a wife instead of gf. I would never want to ruin someone else life or go through the experience of breaking my heart again and being abused. I made a promise to stay away from that sort of stuff. But my concern was that there was a really nice girl who seemed genuine only she was nonmuslim and I was worried she would have tempted me into a relationship.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Its hard when there many muslims girls who seem interested... but I want to marry a genuine girl. A girl who is Muslim both inside and outside and has a kind heart. But these days its almost impossible to find someone like that

    - - - Updated - - -

    My family doenst want me to look...my mother main concern is that she doesnt trust Muslim girls from our community and she doesnt want me to marry someone abusive...but at the same time she will not let me look for someone. She says she will find me someone when it's my time.

    Re: Am I fool for keeping my distance and rejecting women?

    I think there is really not much to sorry about, even if you would want to go for a date with them.

    Now, as a chaste man, you are like a prize for them. I had some similar experience.
    They are used that guys are going long distances for dating with them and out of sport interest are trying to seduce you.
    If you will just show interest in one of them, all fame will disappear.
    So, choose the right one, if there is any.

    As Keiv said, the situation can lead to awkward situation and conflict. I imagine it might work, but it would take special kind of person and chances are high it would not.
    Keep in mind, that marrying a non muslim would lead to all sorts of questions on the day to day questions that will arise in family life. Of course, if the spouse converts, it is another matter, but she should not convert just o marry you. She should want to convert first for herself and her own future.

    Re: Am I fool for keeping my distance and rejecting women?

    You are not a fool for being selective your choice of a spouse.
    You want to make a wise choice...but remember to search for peity first over anything else. Beauty is a temporary and doesn't last or the initial fantasy around beauty that you have for a woman will dissappear if its only about the physical and then you will end up unhappy in marriage or divorced or forcing her to do polygamy because you want to lust after another woman.
    Just try to find ways to value peity first, i think this is your test before marriage.
    May Allah bless you with a righteous spouse. Ameen.

    @Studentofdeed

    There's no need to be confused as what's past is past and it's no good mulling over it

    look to the future and not the past

    And since your depression is induced by 1, lack of confidence from being rejected in the past and you yearn for love affection and acceptance and 2, you yearn to be married and had a major fallout with your parents over marraige and 3, you've been at the brink of suicide over all this, I wouldn't miss a chance to marry a good girl even if it means without your parents consent. Saving your life and sanity is more important right now so if another opportunity comes along, 'grab it by the horns' and get rid of 90% of your problems by getting married


    So all you do regarding the past is, YOU LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES and move on...

    Am I fool for keeping my distance and rejecting women?

    Brother,
    One thing should be said here is that marry a girl and have faith in Allah and on yourself show her after marriage that what islam’s beauty really is.
    seriously the day man will treat a woman with love and care why don’t she will not follow him? Kind word, wise advice and softest behaviour leaves a best impression and of-course after Nikkah/Marriage the love Allah will put in both of your hearts will definitely left her no chance to not follow you!
    Hope you understand!
    Be strong, let past go and find a new way to deliver what’s good inside you.
    And hope for best that indeed if it also not work out there will be something good for you.
    Have trust on yourself.:
