If The Father Is A Muslim And The Mother A Christian, What Religion Should The Child Embrace?
For reasons different from what a lot of us think we have in our minds, we find out that we get married to people whose thoughts, religion, and lifestyle differ from ours sometimes. A situation where the father is a Muslim and the mother a Christian; what religion should the child embrace? Actually there are families where both parents are indifferent about what religion their children/child chose, but this doesn’t happen all the time. Do you think the child in some or most cases could easily get confused?
Religion is the opium of the people as they always say; with both parents being sympathetic towards their religious practice, what position should the child take? Can he afford to be neutral and become anonymous; not bothering if this has consequences or not? If you found yourself in that situation, what would you do? Would you glady accept if your child chooses to be Christian as his mum even though you are a Muslim?
As a parent, can you afford to be neutral and not encourage your child to take after your religion?
Whats your take on this issue?
