This means their spiritual intimacy with the Lord will be shared in the couples own intimacy with each other.Also, this true spiritual equality takes away any patriarchy.
Also, would the children be Muslims or Christians, or secular?
The answer is clear, if Islam is followed consistently. Where is the spiritual connection and agreement between husband and wife and God?
I remember hearing an interview on the radio with a Muslim, a few years ago. (In this article I will address only the Christian community.) What is the rationale behind the ruling?
As the interview began, the host asked the Muslim guest whether he was married. The radio host pressed home the point, saying that the guests first statement was a little misleading, wasnt it? Then, if I recall correctly, the radio host sensed his guests unease and changed the subject. Beyond any doubt, Islam is patriarchal, so a Muslim man must have final control in the relationship.
The New Testament The New Testament starts the soon-to-be married couple on an equal footing in the selection of a mate.
