بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Answer:

Dating is prohibited in Islam, hence, if you are involved in this act, we advise you to repent from this sin and ask Allah (SWT) for forgiveness. Allah (SWT) says:

وَلَا تَقْرَبُوا الزِّنَا ۖ إِنَّهُ كَانَ فَاحِشَةً وَسَاءَ سَبِيلا

Translation: “And do not come near fornication. Verily, it is a fahisha (a great sin) and an evil path.” (Surah Al-Isra: verse 32).

Shaytan will deceive you by telling you that it is okay to date and you will not touch each other. This is how the devil lures a male and female into his trap until he gets both of them to commit fornication.


Dear sister, we understand that both of you have strong feelings for one another, however, do not base your decisions on emotions. If you are unable to marry this boy due to some reason, we advise that you cut off all ties with him. Focus on acquiring the love of Allah (SWT) by occupying yourself in His remembrance, doing various good deeds, and sitting in the company of pious people.

Only Allah knows best
