Non-Muslim woman being involved with a Muslim man

Q: I am a married non-muslim and wanted to ask that is it wrong if I care for someone who is a muslim with whom I was very close at some point of time in life. However, I perform all my family duties perfectly but I am still worried about his well being. I respect Bhagwan, Allah, God in all different forms but I feel Karm (work) is very important because everyone has been sent by God for a reason. Please guide me how do I make that muslim guy understand that work and prayer both is important?


A: Islam is a pure religion which advocates modesty and respect to the highest degree. Hence Islam does not permit free intermingling between strange men and women as this leads to immodesty and obscenity. The value system of Islam drastically differs from the value system of any other religion. If you desire success in this world and eternal salvation in the next, then embrace the religion of Islam.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

إِنَّ الدِّينَ عِندَ اللَّـهِ الْإِسْلَامُ وَمَا اخْتَلَفَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ إِلَّا مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَهُمُ الْعِلْمُ بَغْيًا بَيْنَهُمْ وَمَن يَكْفُرْ بِآيَاتِ اللَّـهِ فَإِنَّ اللَّـهَ سَرِيعُ الْحِسَابِ ﴿آل عمران: ١٩﴾

أُولَـٰئِكَ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى النَّارِ وَاللَّـهُ يَدْعُو إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَالْمَغْفِرَةِ بِإِذْنِهِ وَيُبَيِّنُ آيَاتِهِ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ ﴿البقرة: ٢٢١﴾
