    Would you allow your children to marry outside of their ethnicity?

    I know many of you are not parents and do not have adult children, but inshaAllah if you live long enough to do so, would you allow them to marry outside of your ethnicity?

    Also, what kind of conditions would you require someone to have in order for your son/daughter to be allowed to marry them? E.g. do they need to be earning x amount of money etc.?

    Wait, what if they are already mixed race themselves - what does their ethnicity become then?

    I'll leave this thread once my question is answered
    Then their ethnicity is of two ethnicities.

    A lot of people say they are a certain ethnicity but they have a mix of other ethnicities somewhere down the line anyway, so the whole idea fails.

    A Pakistani marrying an Indian would be seen as marrying outside your ethnicity, but they were the same ethnicity less than a hundred years ago.

    The whole thing doesn't make sense to me. I'm gonna leave this thread now.

    Actually, I would probably push them very hard to marry outside their ethnicity if possible. Mix it up inshAllah!

    I actually would encourage them to marry outside of their race. It will break down race barriers.
    Say, O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”

    Re: Would you allow your children to marry outside of their ethnicity?

    It would be completely hypocritical of me to be opposed to an interracial marriage since I am Latina and the man I am interested in marrying is Arab. I could just imagine telling my kids, marrying outside of your race is wrong and them giving me the odd ball eye look lol

    Inshallah when I have children and get married I hope they marry a spouse who is righteous and fears Allah. Wealth is not everything in this life, although it is important, I would still would advise my children to always pick piety over material means.

    Re: Would you allow your children to marry outside of their ethnicity?



    No way.....am I letting anything come before deen. So, yeah!

    Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

    Re: Would you allow your children to marry outside of their ethnicity?

    I would definitely keep an open mind. My only concerns are how the two cultures could co-exist, and especially If I had daughters. So I guess if you ask me Islamically yes I have no qualms with it but the sad reality is society lives within the norms of it's culture, and if my daughter can't fit in with her in-laws and is treated harshly because she cant settle into their way of life then that's something I wouldn't want for her.

    Though Im still only young (very), and I'm yet to get married even, perhaps my outlook will change.

    I know we shouldn't consider things like that before anyone comes at me with that, but it exists, and in the UK it's especially hard to find people that aren't at all cultural.

    However, if the potential is good in character and so is the family I would allow it despite my worries, so maybe I chose the wrong answer lol

    no one is gonna say no, they would be called racist lol. its interesting that this is anonymous, it gives some credibility but looking at the threads posted I would have expected the opposite result. I think this thread is more idealism then reality.

    my kids are african/jamaican/asian/welsh/scottish/english/irish/gypsy/norman french from the marriages of their great great grandparents, great grandparents, grandparents and parents, and we have a lot of other ethnicities in our family including chinese, brazillian, norwegian, swiss, danish, ethiopian, yemeni, egyptian, moroccon and croatian. so its not an issue at all alhamdulillah.

    conditions to be allowed to marry ? they can choose who they want its their life and they have to live with the person they choose.

    "O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do." [An-Nisa 4:135]

    The Prophet said:

    "Whosoever leaves off obedience and separates from the Jamaa'ah and dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah. Whoever fights under the banner of the blind, becoming angry for 'asabiyyah (nationalism/tribalism/partisanship) or calling to 'asabiyyah, or assisting 'asabiyyah, then dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah."

    muslim

    Narrated 'Abdullah:

    The Prophet, said, "Abusing a Muslim is Fusuq (evil doing) and killing him is Kufr (disbelief)." sahih bukhari


    "Creeping upon you is the diseases of those people before you: envy and hatred. And hatred is the thing that shaves. I do not say it shaves the hair but it shaves the religion!

    By the One in whose Hand is my soul, you will not enter paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Certainly, let me inform you of that which may establish such things: spread the greetings and peace among yourselves."

    [Recorded by Imam Ahmad and Al-Tirmidhi]

    Re: Would you allow your children to marry outside of their ethnicity?

    I have no right to stop them, if a pious person of good character came up for one of my kids I'd jump at the chance no matter what ethnicity they were

    Otherwise finding someone same as them who is 50% Kutchi, 25% Irish, 18.75% English, and 6.25% Scots is just going to be such a nightmare.
