Salam Dr Shabbir!
I once had a phone conversation with you about certain things that could be relaxed when we are not in countries where 'Divine System' is in place and one such topic was Interest. I don't recollect other topics, but I firmly believe that the topic of Marriage should also be considered under circumstances where 'Divine System' is not in place.
Let 's consider a hypothetical situation where all 'Quran Recommended Men' are married. A Woman might not find a 'Quran Recommended Man' for marriage but there could be Men from other faiths, who could range from Polytheist to Atheist. What would the woman do? One suggestion for the woman would be to not marry. Or marry the already married from 'Quran recommended Men'?
I hope the example is straight forward. I believe that there could be some alternative from the Quran. Could you please check and let us all know?
