Dating restrictions on muslims
Dating definitely does not carry the same meaning for Muslims as it does for non-Muslims, especially Westerners.
Touching, kissing, and similar actions are regarded to be haram therefore they are prohibited until two people are considered legally and religiously married.
The marital contract is the Nikah and no Islamic marriage is valid without it.
There are no set rules for how to do this, it can be a small affair a week before part 2 (explained) or on the same day as the Walima. It all begins with Islamic courting and ends with a wedding party.
Meeting, going out together and talking are of course allowed because two people need the opportunity to familiarize themselves with each other and "fall in love".
Things like self-preservation, discipline and protection, do. Before you try to understand the hows and whys of Halal Dating, bring God into the equation. Unless you ask them what actually happens, they won't tell you. And since you are still reading, I'll explain as best I can.You don't wait 6 months to get married and there is no gigantic engagement party.But that's not to say you can't have an engagement party.
