Will you get punished for touching a persons private part of your opposite sex before you are married?

I don't know any prescribed punishment according to Islam for this sin in the worldly life. But there is a Hadith (S.A.W) regarding this issue to highlight how big this sin is.

The Prophet (S.A.W) said “If one of you were to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle, that would be better for him than his touching a woman who is not permissible for him.” Narrated by al-Tabaraani in al-Kabeer, 486; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 5045.

You should repent for what you did and make a promise to Allah (S.W.T) not to do it again.

Yes, indeed. Even if you will touch your future wife's private part before a day of marriage, it is a sin.

I dont really know what you mean by 'touching' but i will assume sex. Well yes there is a punishment but remeber Allah (almighty) is most forgiving and ever merciful.-aqibA
