Muslim rules of dating
Please remember this whenever you're faced with a Muslim conundrum. Some Muslims outright say it 'I'm dating' and they are, in the complete boy-meets-girl-third-base sense. This entire dating culture of meeting someone for only sex, for only a short-term relationship, is not the ideal or healthiest way to go about finding a partner-in-crime.
In Islamic law, a physical relationship is initiated with a marriage () to gain God's blessings.
Physical and deeper emotional attachments are a second or third aim, after this long-term commitment is made.
Variety is the beauty of Muslim lifestyle so you'll find that no two Muslims think exactly the same about the Do's and Don'ts of a Halal date.
In spite of this, there is a generally accepted process as to how an Islamic date should go about.
The marital contract is the Nikah and no Islamic marriage is valid without it.
