There are lots of married Muslim couples in the West but there is also a problem present for some of us.
In the West clothing is not as modest as it is in Muslim majority countries. Lots of women wear tight clothing,makeup etc and even young individuals are doing it. Its extremely rare to see someone dressed in the correct manner and I can say this with certainty its probably been over at least 3 months (corona may have played part but again there is social media). There are also women who smoke, drink, majority have relationships and lots have committed Zina (this is all from personally conversing with others and of course openly communicating about this). There are also numerous who dont pray and again this is the majority and I know because from majority one ive spoken to, texted etc (males arent an exception) this is just a recurring theme.
Ive read this: https://islamqa.info/en/answers/5208/neglecting-prayer-out-of-laziness and in it it says those who miss prayers are considered kaffir.
The things mentioned above dont cover the minor bad deeds that are done. Now for marriage i have read that you should marry a practising Muslim and its really hard to find someone. If they are which I doubt Ive found in a while then there may be an issue in appearnace which could play an impact later. An alternative is moving counries but then there is a lanuage barrier.
Barely anyone also asks for permission for a relationship first and usually get into a relationship first and later on ask about marriage. This is also something that isnt allowed to my understanding.
Is it permissible to marry someone who dresses immodestly or is negligent in prayer etc if you cannot find anyone else?
Even if you are allowed but have to try help them change their ways, what if they dont are you allowed to pursue the marriage?
