I am happy to see an American Indian Muslimah!! I love my men of African ancestry in USA but I have always wanted an inter-ethnic relationship preferably with an American Indian man. It seems some are not open to this religion. What do you sense?
In my opinion, it's possible marrying into different culture as long as both have same religion in order to lead the same direction. The most important is to understand, be tolerance and ready to learn new thing, either good or bad things of other culture are valuable experiences.
ASALAM FEMALI DYHA,I THINK MARRIAGE TO OTHERS CULTURES IS POSOBLE,LOVE IS GREAT AND FREE,IF LOVE IS CLEAN AND SINCERILY AND TAKE THE ROAD OF JUSTICE AND TRUE MARRIAGE IS POSIBLE,,,ALLAH LOVE HUMANS,ALLAH LOVE MARRIAGE,ALLAH LOVE WHO LOVE TRUE,,,SALAM,,, I,M FROM SPAIN,DO YOU KNOW SPAIN,? GOD THINNGS TO YOU

dont you think that would be exciting as both know little about each others background so Instead of same culture you know all the things. a nice ayah is in order:
49.13 O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things)
I would like to comment on marrying another race or culture. I am a native american indian and mexican female who has married a muslim....both sides of the family was not expecting it...however we followed thru with it and was able to make it work! One thing for sure though, do find out before hand about arranged marriages b/c thats what happeded to us. His side of the family...not his father or mothers but like aunt and uncle made the decision to have him have a arranged marriage...they didnt know he was married here in us. So, we had to get divorced and he had to move back home...even though he didnt want to....he did it out of the respect of his family.....
Well, my husbands family were very excited to tell you the truth. I think what surprised them the most was that I'm an American but at the same time I'm a muslima and I wear hijab. He told them without them asking.Which is a good thing. My mother-in-law asked me a lot of stuff. How did I meet my husband, how did I know about Egypt. Note: she only knows how to say a few things in English. So he had to translate. My father-in-law. I love the man. He has a great sense of humor. He's a serious person, but he has like a thousand jokes!So talking to them wasn't such a big deal. It maybe scary for some people. That's because I think the other side of the family has to get use to the fact that race isn't everything. Insha'Allah I'll see them soon.
i want just to ask you all the married people ....how did you faced the family and the all the people from your country about marring to another man or woman from another country?? especially when you tell them that you going to leave them away and 'll live in another country ??? i think its so hard for you
Whoa, I think that's cool. By me being an American, I didn't want to marry an American at all. No ma'am, no sir. I just wanted to learn more, I wanted to know more, I wanted to deal with people who has a universal way of thinking instead of thinking that the whole world suppose to think like us. It doesn't work like that. Alhamdulillah I got that chance. insha'Allah others will too.
