Islam way of dating

Question: Is dating before marriage allowed in Islam?

Allah (God, in English) says, “Do not come near fornication, for it is indeed lewdness and an evil life-style”, (Al-Isra’ 17- 32).

Both men and women are ordered not to enter houses without permission.

Approach your dating with Muslim men as you would with any other man judge him on his own merits and keep an open mind.

Muslim Values in a Relationship Most Muslims take dating highly seriously and are looking for straight forward women of substance.

"Dating" as it is currently practiced in much of the world does not exist among Muslims.

Young Muslim men and women (or boys and girls) do not enter into one-on-one intimate relationships, spending time alone together, "getting to know each other" in a very deep way before deciding whether that's the person they will marry.

Depending on how devout the man is, there are also many things to consider practically and there might be some sacrifices that you are not prepared to make.

All this should be discussed with your partner before the relationship progresses past a certain point.

One of the main goals in avoiding relationships between members of the opposite sex is also to avoid fornication.

Islam forbids all sexual relationships outside marriage.

Afterall, people can pretend so dating them might not be a very correct form of judging their character.
