Drawing the Lines or Simply Put Period
May 9, 2011 8:33am CST
Friends. Should we still be the best friends of our Muslim ex-boyfriends who have gotten married? If you are in that position, would you draw a line on it or would you simply put an end to that friendship for fear that you are putting your Muslim ex-boyfriend in the near occasions of sin? How does one draw the line anyway? If you have decided to end it (even though you are the very best of friends), how do you terminate it? Would you leave a note saying goodye or just completely ignore him thus forgetting a once-a-very-valuable-and-good friendship?

Maybe you can go travel in a while and find yourself the answer. In that way you will realize what your heart truly desires and how does it go with what your minds tell you to. Ending it easily may cost you entire pain the whole life, you must always think it over. Don't let yourself bring you down. You can also list your reasons, every reasons so that you can weigh it. Then if you go and move in a while you will find peace.

You have particularly emphasised on 'Muslim ex boy friends'. Not knowing the reason why, I feel one should have nothing to do with any ex boy friends who are married even though one has a friendly feeling. Being in close proximity is bound to complicate the lives of all involved.

If you have decided to end the relationship then just do it. Don't have any contact with him again. In Sharia Law, a Muslim can have 4 wives, so he could still want to marry you. If you don't want to be in that kind of relationship, where you share your husband, then I'd stay far away and not return phone calls, e-mails or text messages at all. I think that you said it all forget the "once a very valuable ... friendship. Just drop him and don't worry about it. He married someone else and that's it. Unless you want to be part of a harem. . .
