Why does Allah Almighty allow Muslim men to marry non Muslim women, but doesn't allow Muslim women to marry non Muslim men?

Was Islam's Muta (temporary marriage) Law immoral?  What does the Bible say about it?




I am single and committed fornication.  The Quran in 24:3 forbids for me to marry a believer.  What can I do?  (Quran 24:5 forgives the True and Sincere)

The sections of this article are:

1-  Regarding those who commit zina (fornication or adultery) in the Glorious Quran.
2-  Conclusion.




1-  Regarding those who commit zina in the Glorious Quran:

I received this question from an anonymous brother.  Let us look at what Allah Almighty Said in Noble Verses 24:1-5.  Notice the big And in the following Noble Verses.  It links both 24:3 and 24:4 together, and then in 24:5 Allah Almighty gives the forgiveness for those who not just repent, but also mend:

Noble Verse(s) 24:1-24:5
Yusuf Ali:

[024:001]  A sura which We have sent down and which We have ordained in it have We sent down Clear Signs, in order that ye may receive admonition.

[024:002]  The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication,- flog each of them with a hundred stripes: Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by God, if ye believe in God and the Last Day: and let a party of the Believers witness their punishment.

[024:003]  Let no man guilty of adultery or fornication marry and but a woman similarly guilty, or an Unbeliever: nor let any but such a man or an Unbeliever marry such a woman: to the Believers such a thing is forbidden.

[024:004]  And those who launch a charge against chaste women, and produce not four witnesses (to support their allegations),- flog them with eighty stripes; and reject their evidence ever after: for such men are wicked transgressors;-

[024:005]  Unless they repent thereafter and mend (their conduct); for God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

Arabic (Read from right to left.  Also, all png image files: [1] [2]):

24:1 سورة انزلناها وفرضناها وانزلنا فيها ايات بينات لعلكم تذكرون

24:2 الزانية والزاني فاجلدوا كل واحد منهما مئة جلدة ولاتاخذكم بهما رافة في دين الله ان كنتم تؤمنون بالله واليوم الاخر وليشهد عذابهما طائفة من المؤمنين

24:3 الزاني لاينكح الا زانية او مشركة والزانية لاينكحها الا زان او مشرك وحرم ذلك على المؤمنين

24:4 والذين يرمون المحصنات ثم لم ياتوا باربعة شهداء فاجلدوهم ثمانين جلدة ولاتقبلوا لهم شهادة ابدا واولئك هم الفاسقون

24:5 الا الذين تابوا من بعد ذلك واصلحوا فان الله غفور رحيم

I don't believe there is much more to say about these Noble Verses, because they are pretty explaining themselves very well.  But I just want the reader to note the following:

1-  Noble Verse 24:2 gives the punishment for fornication.  Many Muslims also believe that this includes the married adulterers.  I've thoroughly went through this at:

  • Was Islam's Muta (temporary marriage) Law immoral?  What does the Bible say about it?
  • 2-  We see Noble Verses 24:3-4 are linked together with the big And as I called it.

    3-  We then see immediately after them in Noble Verse 24:5 that Allah Almighty forgives the sinners and allows them to become normal Believers again, and to have the rights of the Believers again if AND ONLY IF:

            (a)-  They repent.
            (b)-  They mend and prove that they truly repented.

    A person could verbally "repent".  This is worthless.  This is why the mending condition is there.  If the person does not mend, then he/she should not attempt to marry a Believer, because that could probably cause a great deal of sin to come upon them.

    4-  Otherwise, those who don't mend could end up cheating on their spouses, because they have neither changed nor healed.



    2-  Conclusion:

    While sin in Islam is big and its consequences are heavy, and sometimes very publically humiliating, and sometimes very socially costing, but it is not the end of the world for the Muslim.  The road for repentance and mending is always open, because Allah Almighty is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.

    From www.answering-christianity.com/muta_forbidden_with_shias.htm:


    1-  Careless divorce will bring sin upon you:

    Muta marriage was a temporary marriage that destined for divorce, which Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, is said to have allowed for Muslim men who fought in battles in distant lands.  They were allowed to marry women there temporarily.  Allah Almighty has thoroughly prohibited all forms of temporary marriages, and has stressed the holiness of permanent marriage in the Glorious Quran.

    Was it legalized prostitution?  Was it a form of pimping women and men for just sex?  Absolutely not, because even with the Muta marriage, there was still the requirement of at least two witnesses testifying that the couple have married (announcing the marriage publically protects everyone.  Ex: Married women are not approached by other men as single women, and pregnant women are known to be pregnant wives, not pregnant harlots), the dowry payment upon the husband, and Muslim women still had to go through the Idda period after the divorce.  So it was a legitimate full marriage but with the exception that it was destined for planned divorce (i.e., termination).  Allah Almighty ultimately forbade intentional non-permanent marriages. 

    Here is what Allah Almighty Said regarding divorce in the Noble Quran.  It almost always brings sin upon the regular married folks.  However, if a man is engaged with a woman, and they had a marriage contract already done, with dowry payment, witnesses and announcing to all people in their community that they got married, but they have not yet consummated the marriage through sexual intercourse, then there is no sin upon them if they divorce, as long as they have not consummated the marriage:

    2:236 لاجناح عليكم ان طلقتم النساء مالم تمسوهن او تفرضوا لهن فريضة ومتعوهن على الموسع قدره وعلى المقتر قدره متاعا بالمعروف حقا على المحسنين

    "You bear no sin if you divorce your wives AS LONG AS YOU HAVE NOT (ma-lam مالم) had (a sexual) contact (with them), and before settling (the amount of) the nuptial premium (for them). Yet, you should make provisions for them (even then); the affluent in keeping with his means, and the poor according to what he can afford. A fair provision is an obligation upon the pious.  (The Noble Quran, 2:236)"


    Ma-lam مالم in Arabic means "as long as you have not," which makes it a condition and a Law.  The meaning of the word مالم as "as long as you have not" is very well-known in Arabic and the translation is also proven by ample English translations of this Noble Verse.  So irresponsible divorce after the consummation of marriage (after sex) will bring sin upon the irresponsible and guilty one(s).  The Noble Verse is crystal-clear about this.


    2-  The solemn holiness of marriage (ميثاقا غليظا):

    Also, the covenant of marriage in the Glorious Quran Is a Mighty and Solemn Covenant ميثاقا غليظا (mee-thaa-qan gha-leetha).  This exact phrase is mentioned three times (4:21, 4:154, 33:7) in the Glorious Quran for the following Covenants:

    1-  For the solemn covenant of marriage between the husband and wife.
    2-  For the solemn covenant between GOD Almighty and the Prophets.
    3-  For the solemn covenant between GOD Almighty and the Jews on the holiness of the Sabbath.

    Again, please see Noble Verses 4:21, 4:154, 33:7 Divorce is allowed, but it is a detested lawful thing to Allah Almighty.  Abusing it or misusing it will bring sin upon you.


    3-  One wife is the most preferred to Allah Almighty:

    Furthermore, Allah Almighty made it crystal clear that He best prefers for Muslim men to only marry one wife, each.  Messing around with marrying multiple women is a slippery slope that could bring sin upon you:

    Noble Verse 4:3 "If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, marry women of your choice, Two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice."

    Marry one woman to prevent you from doing injustice.  This is further supported also in the following Noble Verse:

    Noble Verse 4:129 "Ye are never able to be fair and just as between women, even if it is your ardent desire: But turn not away (from a woman) altogether, so as to leave her (as it were) hanging (in the air). If ye come to a friendly understanding, and practise self-restraint, God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful."

    Polygamy is allowed by Allah Almighty, but like divorce, it too is a detested lawful thing to Allah Almighty.  And most certainly, abusing it or misusing it will bring sin upon you.





    Ask me any question.

    Was Islam's Muta (temporary marriage) Law immoral?  What does the Bible say about it?

    Why does Allah Almighty allow Muslim men to marry non Muslim women, but doesn't allow Muslim women to marry non Muslim men?

    The Mercy of Allah Almighty in the Glorious Quran and Islam.

    If I committed something that is considered a sin in Islam without knowing, will God punish me for it?

    How can GOD Almighty be absolutely Just and Merciful at the same time?  How is justice served when Mercy and Forgiveness of sins are applied to some people and not others?

    Can a Believer be unjust and an evil doer?  What does the Glorious Quran Say about this?

    Will Allah really weight our deeds or is it just metaphorical? [2]

    Quran Miracle: The Jews' and Christians' scribes changed and still change the Words.  Proven with images, text and videos from their corrupt bible and books!  See how they removed words and altered words.


    Bible Hoaxes on GOD:  Rebekah's story is a clear and indisputable proof that many of the Bible's accounts are full of hoaxes!

  • Permission by GOD to bless through lying and deceiving?? [1]  I think these are man's lies in the Bible!

    MORE LIES ON GOD: Rebuttal to Jochen Katz on FOX News' lying on their motto (Balanced Lies Rebuttal).

    Who was the sacrificed son?  Isaac or Ishmael?  Even the altered Bible thoroughly supports that it was Ishmael [1] in many passages.  And in Islam there is no "El" (God) in names as in Ishmael or Gabriel in Hebrew?  Is the GOD of Islam different?  Allah Almighty allowed for His Holy Name to be shortened (as "El" in Ishmael, and Lillah for Li-Allah in the Quran, as in Alhamdulillah) in both Islam and Judaism [1].

    Differences between the Noble Quran and Bible only prove Islam's Truthfulness and Divinity.

    GOD became concerned that the Babylonians' Tower that they were constructing will reach Him???

  • And they talk about Taqiya??

  • Bible says that Jews from their essence were liars.  From their "birth" they were liars writing lies the Old Testament declares them.  The Bible is full of man-made corruption and fabrications especially in the Jews' ancient history and stories.  Their writings were written with the "lying pens of the scribes".

    Deuteronomy 4:2 says it is a lie to have a Bible.

    Quran's STUNNING Divine Miracles: [1]

    Allah Almighty also promised in several Divine Prophecies that He will show the Glorious Quran's Miracles to mankind:

    1-  The root letters for "message" and all of its derivatives occur 513 times throughout the Glorious Quran.  Yet, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone, the Prophets' and Messengers' actual names (Muhammad, Moses, Noah, Abraham, Lot etc....) were also all mentioned 513 times in the Glorious Quran.  The detailed breakdown of all of this is thoroughly listed here.  This Miracle is covered in 100s (hundreds) of Noble Verses.

    2-  Allah Almighty said that Prophet Noah lived for 950 years.  Yet, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone, the entire Noble Surah (chapter Noah) is exactly written in 950 Letters.  You can thoroughly see the accurate count in the scanned images.

    Coincidence?  See 1,000s of examples [1].  Quran's Stunning Numerical & Scientific Miracles.

    Islam also thoroughly rejects as man-made lies the Trinity and Crucifixion [2].  Jesus was also thoroughly called
    slave of GOD [1] in both the OT and NT.
