Hello brothers. I just recently started dating. Is it OK to date in Islam? Does Allah approve of it? I do have a girlfriend right now, starting 2 weeks ago. She is a very nice Jewish girl, is it OK to date a non-Muslim girl? Can I have sex with her? Please respond, thanks!

Brother dating is not allowed in islam.finish

Hello brother


Thank you for your question. Let me begin by saying that I truly appreciate your desire to know more about what Allah your Lord approves of you. I sincerely pray that Allah guides you to the straight path brother. Ameen,

Allah has not allowed Muslims to date or have sex with someone they are not married to. Sex outside marriage is actually a major sin in Islam. It is a very very dangerous sin to commit.

Allah says in the Quran about this sin (in translation):

The woman and the man guilty of fornication, flog each of them with a hundred stripes: Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by Allah, if ye believe in Allah and the Last Day: And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (Surah Nur. Verse 2)

I advise you dear brother to stay a long long way away from this act, as it will bring you nothing but regret and regret.

It is indeed Allah's Mercy and Grace upon you that you have come here and asked your question before things have gone too far. Alhamdulillah!

You have said that you have just started dating. This inshaAllah means it is easier for you to put an end to this than some other people. I advise dear brother to put an end to it.

Remember it is Allah Alone who can bring happiness in your life. How can we ever hope to be happy by doing something that makes Him angry? If He allows a temporary pleasure in doing something that will make Him angry, this life's pleasures compared to the eternal life to come is only infinitesimal.

May Allah make you strong. May Allah guide you. May Allah help you to chose the right path. May Allah reward you for finding out what Allah has allowed and what He has forbidden.
