FYI: Muslim Dating Dialogues


Altmuslimah.com, one of my new favorite sites to visit, has launched an interesting initiative called Muslim Dating Dialogues. It got me wondering what a similar initiative might look like among Baha'is. Check it out:

In laying the groundwork for productive discussion on dating, it is essential to pay close attention to how we communicate with one another. Four panelists kick start a discussion on the communication divide between Muslim men and women, and how it must change on both the individual and communal level (Anas Coburn’s recent article also takes an in-depth look at this issue). This is the beginning of a complex and multi-faceted conversation that will expand throughout the Dialogues, and so we encourage readers to sustain it by sharing their own perspectives and questions.
