Dating and marriage in islam
Katrinas new husband also showered her with fabulous gifts. He took me on the dance floor and literally swept me off my feet. SCOTT ROSS (reporting): That was just her spending money. At any time during your dating process did the spiritual roots of your lifei.e. KATRINA: Absolutely, but he kept telling me it was the same God, just a different language, that Allah was the same God as the God I served. I say that love is not blind, its deaf and dumb also.
Abu Hurairah reported the Messenger of Allah SAW said; “Let not any of you propose to a woman to whom his brother is proposing.
I know that there are certain norms in Islam that has to be followed while meeting people of the other sex.
Now in situation when you are to decide whom to marry, how do you go on discussing this issue with the opposite sex so that the meeting remain within the norm of Islam?
A common thing (or so I've heard) that they do (in Egypt specifically) is when the prospective couple meet (with a chaperone) and decide to take the next step, they do nikah.
Islamically, they are now legally married, but for their (cultural) purposes they are just engaged, and they start "dating." In this case, dating would of course be halal, since they're technically married. Hmmm a nice question and a nice and suitable background!
