Is dating haram in islam
The Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: “A woman may be married for four things: her wealth, her lineage, her beauty and her commitment to religion.
Choose the one who is religious, may your hands be rubbed with dust [i.e., may you prosper]! Dear brother in Islam, we hope that the main points of the issue have become clear.
There is no room in Islam for illicit affairs or the Western vogue-word of boyfriend and girlfriend.
All those stories of media and movies are not helpful to make a person comply with the teachings of Islam.
From an Islamic perspective, in choosing a partner, the most important factor that should be taken into consideration is Taqwa(piety and consciousness of Allah).Though love is something nice, and it is recommended for a man to marry a woman whom he loves, because the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: “There is nothing better for two who love each other than marriage.” (Sahih Al-Jami`, 5200)However, this love should not be overwhelming and cause a person to forget other characteristics which he should look for in the person he wants to marry.The most important characteristic is religious commitment.You may be surprised to learn the subject of Divorce – is also mentioned and dealt with in very clear terms, to insure that it does not happen except with due consideration and proper representation and insurance of rights for both parties.Quran offers many references concerning rights and limits in marriage, love and divorce.
