The question has been closed for the following reason "The question is answered, right answer was accepted" by Irfan Alam Dec 12 '12 at 08:11

In Islam, fornication and adultery are grave sins and committing either bears serious consequences in this world and the hereafter. However, in a practical and matchless approach to prevent the crime of zina before its occurrence, Islam does not merely forbid the actual deeds, but Islam also declares each and every circumstance or avenue that may lead to fornication and adultery as forbidden. Allah Almighty says, “And come not near unto adultery. Lo! it is an abomination and an evil way.” (Al-Isra’: 32)

But those who commit this sin should not lose hope in Allah's forgiveness as long as they repent and are determined to correct their lewd conduct.If u feel that u want to have sex or have a temptation then u should marry.

The best description that I personally have ever read describing the closeness of the spouses to each other is the Qur'anic verse which says: "they are your garments and you are their garments" (Surah Al Baqarah 2:187). Indeed, spouses are like garments to each other because they provide one another with the protection, the comfort, the cover, the support, and the adornment that garments provide to humans. Just imagine a journey in the winter of Alaska without garments! Our spouses provide us with the same level of comfort, protection, cover, and support in the journey of our lives on this earth as garments would do in the Alaskan journey.

"And Allah has made for you Mates (and Companions) of your own nature ..." (Surah Al Nahl 16:72)

"And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves that you may dwell in tranquillity with them and He has put love and mercy between your hearts: verily in that are signs for those who reflect." (Surah Al Rum 30:21)

there is life after death where those who did righteousness in this world will be joined by their spouses (Surah Al Zukhruf 43:70) and offsprings.

Just out of curiosity if you had intercourse whom you will be married in few days is wrong ?

Is intercourse is halal after nikkah(marriage contract) or its valid after marriage ceremony .. My friend is in marriage contract but their marriage ceremony is delayed until 4 months so in between if they meet will their intercourse be considered as halal?

No its only be halal after Nikah (both boy and girl married in presence of maulwi, mufti, etc and gawah (approver)).

Not halal after marriage contract, till they not get married, Means after marriage ceremony.

@aaliya: Actually Questions and topics like these are considered too bold for a girl or woman to talk to in indo-pak area. It surprises many people. So dont worry. :)

It says to get married really young, at the age of 12-15. To avoid sex before marriage! The temptation may be sometimes strong.

People were applying this in some country so they couldn't have the temptation.

             I hope it helped.
