Dating islamic men
There is no room in Islam for illicit affairs or the Western vogue-word of boyfriend and girlfriend.
All those stories of media and movies are not helpful to make a person comply with the teachings of Islam.
The choice of a partner by a Muslim virgin girl is subject to the approval of the father or guardian. The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: "The widow and the divorced woman shall not be married until she has consented to that and the virgin shall not be married until her consent is sought." The Prophet did nullify the marriage of a girl who complained to him that her father had married her against her wishes.
Though love is something nice, and it is recommended for a man to marry a woman whom he loves, because the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: “There is nothing better for two who love each other than marriage.” (The most important characteristic is religious commitment.
The unrealistic expectation that young people have is what often contributes to the failure of their relationship.
The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, recommended the suitors to see each other before going through with marriage procedures.This is because people are blinded by the physical attraction and thus do not choose the compatible partner.The girl’s refusal to marry a person who has asked her hand in marriage, we suggest that, if such thing happens, the person in question can make efforts and seek all permissible ways to persuade the father or the guardian of the girl to give her in marriage to him.The Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: “A woman may be married for four things: her wealth, her lineage, her beauty and her commitment to religion. If the lady you want to marry is religious, of good manners, and obeys Allah and His Messenger, and both of you want to please Allah in this world in order to earn reward in the Hereafter, then you have made a perfect choice, and we ask Allah to fulfill your hopes and bring you together in a good way.Choose the one who is religious, may your hands be rubbed with dust [i.e., may you prosper]! If she is not, then you should reconsider your choice.
