Hello, my name is Jack and I am in love with a Somali Muslim woman. I love her so much. Her parents want me to convert to Islam to marry her since I am a Christian. I don’t want to change the faith that I profess. What should I do?
It is clear from your tone that you genuinely love that lady and want to spend the rest of your life wife with her.
I find it quite unfortunate that her parents want you to embrace Islam for you to marry her.
Love is between two people and is based on the feelings that they have for one another and not the religion that they profess.
Your relationship depends on what the two of you think and not what your parents think.
It is up to the two of you to decide the direction in which you want things to move.
Lately, two love birds, Ben Kitili and Amina Mude, who profess different faiths tied the knot.
The fact that one was Muslim and the other one was not did not prevent them from going down the aisle and exchanging vows.
