Saalam.I am a Muslim male, and recently I have started dating a girl with good intentions in my heart. My parents say It is against Islam. I just don't listen and they said I would regret it. That got me worried so I came for answers. Here are my questions. Thank you in advance.
1.Is it a sin in general to date, regardless of intentions whether good or bad. When I say date I mean like the movies, going to restaurant etc. And I do have good intentions in my heart.
2.Physical Affection: When I say that I mean hugging, kissing on the lips, holding hands etc. Is this considered a Sin in Islam? Again with good intentions.
- This one is VERY serious and please don't bombard me with hatred, I mean no disrespect, I only come for answers. Lets say we were to have protected sexual intercourse (With a condom). I know that may seem to push it but I just want to know. A few days ago I went to buy condoms for sex because she suggested it. I thought it was perfectly fine. I came back and we started. It was only 5 minutes then I stopped myself and said to myself, Is this right? I then took a shower and went to bed ,worried about what I had done. So please answer this, Is it OK to have PROTECTED safe sex with a woman I have good intentions with, when we are both very interested in each other? I do actually plan to marry this woman. It's not the American type dating your probably thinking, where they date for fun. I am very serious about my future with this woman.
