Dating in islam marriage
Salatul Istakharah (the prayer for letting Allah to choose for you), is the most important and most effective way to find what will make you the happiest and give you the best partner for your life here and in the Hereafter.
Some of the issues I have discussed have show how love gets us into some tricky situations.
That is very important because it is unreasonable for two people to be thrown into marriage and be expected to have a successful marital life, full of love and affection, when they know nothing of each other. This ruling does not contradict the Qur'anic verse that says, “…believing men and women should lower their gaze” (An-Nur: 30).
The couple, however, are not permitted to be alone in a closed room or go out together alone.
Marriage in Islam is a beautiful way for two people to bring together their families, heritage and culture for the purpose of bringing more little Muslims into the world, in love, commitment and dedication to Allah, His Book, His prophet, peace be upon him, and surrender to Him in peace (Islam).One can also seek the help of the Imam of the Islamic Center where the girl’s father goes, to talk with him about this, and always pray earnestly to Allah to help realize the dream if it’s good.But we have to emphasize that it is not lawful to compel a girl to marry someone she does not want.But all this should all be in the name of marriage - to complete ones deen.On a final note I guess some would say "all is fair in love and war" but in Islam I don't think it is.
