Create a 15–20-page presentation on Islam, its ritual of marriage, and its global reach, along with a 2-page description of your personal opinions regarding inter-faith marriage.
Choose a country from the list below, and read the following scenario to use as the basis for this assessment.
Saudi Arabia.
Imagine you are a part of a large and close family. Much of what holds your family together is a common belief system, specifically that of the Catholic faith. Your sister, who has been working in a foreign country teaching English (the country you selected above), announces that she is getting engaged. It turns out the person she wishes to marry is from the country in which she has been living and working and also is a devotee of that country’s primary religion.
The couple plans to hold the wedding in the groom’s home country and in accordance with the rituals of his religion. The reaction within the family is one of shock and disappointment. While your parents are unhappy about the proposed union, the more important issue is your mother’s unyielding insistence for a ceremony that reflects the matrimonial traditions of her faith. She refuses to attend a wedding in which her daughter does not adhere to those traditions.
You believe your mother’s position may be based on her lack of understanding of the groom’s religion, its rituals, and its culture. You have decided to conduct some research to educate yourself and your mother on the important elements of the religion.
