Rules for islam dating
Romance and love simply do not result in an everlasting bond between two people.
In most cases, romance and love die out very quickly when couple find themselves with the real world.
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.
MARRIAGEIslam teaches us that marriage is the finest, purest and permissible relationship that should exist between a male and female; it should be the goal that they both have in mind.
Marriage is so serious and so important that it is clearly defined in the Quran and in the teachings of Islam by the prophet, peace be upon him.
To give an example, the couple know each other for years, are intimate, live together and so on.
Yet somehow this does not guarantee the success of the future marriage.
All those stories of media and movies are not helpful to make a person comply with the teachings of Islam.There is to be no physical relationship whatsoever before marriage.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).Question #1The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, says: “Three qualities, if found in a person, will help him have perfect faith: Having Allah and His Messenger, peace and blessings be upon him, as the most beloved ones, loving a person only for the sake of Allah and hating getting back to Kufr (disbelief) the way one hates to be thrown into fire.” That means love is a fruit of piety. There is no concept of courtship in Islam as it is practiced in the West.There is no dating or living in de facto relationship or trying each other out before committing to each other.
