Us muslim dating
(We don't.) Some people seem to have a notion Islam is stuck in the 15th century.Yes, there's always that family friend who can't stop herself from playing matchmaker.In an endearing scene between Ramy and his sister, he explains to her that she doesn’t need to listen to everything that their parents say.
He keeps asking his cousin to take him to mosques; instead, the cousin takes him to a party that is no different from the ones Ramy tired of in New York. She then invites him into her car, climbs on top of him, and asks if he has a condom.
But many Muslim millennials, especially those of us who grew up in the West, want more control over who we end up spending the rest of our lives with.
Platforms like Minder and Muzmatch, another Muslim dating app, have put that power in our hands.
Youssef is a twenty-eight-year-old Egyptian-American comedian and actor who has made a ten-episode semi-autobiographical miniseries, “Ramy,” which is now streaming on Hulu.
The series describes, with tart precision and irony, the lives of young American Muslims who may drink, have sex, and believe in God—and who keep much of their lives secret from their parents and their friends.
Youssef plays the title character, Ramy, who is unclear about what type of Muslim he is or ought to be. “You’re Muslim, I thought, in the way that I am Jewish,” a woman, whom Ramy sleeps with, says in one episode. Put off less by his beliefs than by his deceit, she walks away.
