I just wanted to know if there were any women out there interested in Islam? Not necessarily wanting to convert to Islam (although that would be ok :)), But questions... In case anyone didn't know, Islam is the religion of Muslims... Any questions about Muslims???

I've always been interested. I've learned a lot from this site and have done some independant research. I dated a muslim and I am catholic. He moved back to Jordan so we broke up, but he was the most honest man and I always felt like a princess.

I do have one actually. What is traditionally done after a person dies? My best friend died in a car accident when we were 16. The days following his death are a little hazy to me to this day, but we were not told about or allowed to attend a funeral. I remember it seemed that it had to be done within a certain time period but don't remember why.

I am happy that he made you feel that way... Dating in Islam is not allowed.. Just to clarify for those who don't know.

Muslim men are not what the Media portrays them to be... Mean, Beating there wives, opressing... None of that is true! In fact it is against our religion to beat and oppress.

Yes Muslim men is an Ideal man to be with. Again I am happy that he made you feel that way.

This is for HayKay :)

Honestly? The man I was going to marry was Catholic. I took off my hijab the day I married him. I still miss it.

When a Muslim dies. He/She has to be buried in the state/city where they died at. Also a muslim has to be buried within 24 hours of death. When a Muslim dies we do use that Fluid stuff that ppl usually inject in dead bodies to preserve the dead bodies.. We dont believe in that. When it is time to be buried he/she has to be clothed in a white clothe, on there side facing east, Buried in a wooden box. Typically a Muslim funeral would cost no more that around 300 Bucks. Versus the average of thousands!

I'd love to, in all seriousness. I don't think I would ever be accepted. This area is almost primarily Catholic and the very few Muslim women here only come out at night and are shunned. It seems like such a lonely life.

You will be accepted. Accepted by Allah (God). You are suppose to fear Allah and Allah only.  Who cares what people say, or think. Also you wont be lonely. You are never alone. I love being Muslim and wouldnt change it.. And Islam is something you know and believe, then you should follow it. The Quran states that if you turn your back on the truth (his word) then you will be chastised for it. Just something to think about.
