Can Muslims date non-Muslims? A few decades ago, Muslim society was not familiar with the word dating.
But in this age of globalization, as a result of the exchange of human-to-human culture, we are now very familiar with the term dating.
Western culture has spread strongly in Muslim society. Now Muslim boys and girls want to date like non-Muslim boys and girls.
A boy wants to spend time alone with a girl. But for us, our religion has specified a path. Rules are given.
Which we must follow. Or we believe we will be held accountable for it in the Hereafter.
So today’s question is – can a Muslim date a non-Muslim? We will try to know this answer on the basis of the Quran and Hadith.
Can Muslims date non-Muslims?
A Muslim cannot date a non-Muslim. Because it is prohibited by the Qur’an-Hadith to have private intercourse with men and women, whether Muslim boys or girls.
Many people think that Muslim boys can date non-Muslim girls. But the truth is that the rules are the same for everyone, whether Muslim or not.
A Muslim cannot date another Muslim. Similarly, a Muslim cannot date another non-Muslim.
This is the unanimous opinion of Islamic scholars. It is a sin for a Muslim man to date a Muslim woman. In the same way, is it a sin to date a non-Muslim woman or man?
The sin committed by a man dating a woman is called Zina in Islam.
Zina is a sin for which the Holy Quran has direct punishment.
In fact, there are many branches of Jina. One of them is Zina of the eyes, one is Jina of the heart, and the last stage of Jina is to have sex.
Although the final stage of dating does not include Zina, it is still a major sin. So every Muslim should refrain from it.
Because it is forbidden. And every haram act will cause people to face punishment.
What does the Quran say about whether a Muslim can date a non-Muslim?
In the Holy Qur’an, meeting and talking with boys and girls are prohibited.
And in dating they are even darker haram to be intimate. There are several verses in the Holy Quran about this. We are giving some verses below.
“And do not go to fornication, surely it is an immoral act and an evil way.” Surah Bani Israel – 32
That is, all physical relations outside of marriage are forbidden. Adultery is clearly a punishable offense. For this, there are punishments in the hereafter as well as in this world.
“Tell the believing men to restrain their gaze and guard their private parts. This is more sacred for them. Surely Allah is Aware of what they do.” (Surah Noor – 30)
“And tell the believing women to restrain their gaze and guard their private parts. And apart from what is usually revealed
They will not reveal their beauty. Let them cover their bosoms with their veils.
And let them not show their beauty to anyone except their husbands, fathers, father-in-law, their sons, husbands’ sons, brothers, brother’s sons, sisters’ sons, their women, their right-hands who own them, subordinate asexual men or boys ignorant of women’s private parts. without revealing
And let them not walk briskly to reveal their secret beauty. O believers, all of you turn to Allah in repentance, so that you may be successful.” (Surah Noor – 31)
What does Hadi say about whether a Muslim can date a non-Muslim?
Not do Muslims date non-Muslims. There are several hadiths prohibiting dating and its details, we are giving some hadiths below.
Allah prescribed some part of Zina to the children of Adam; He will definitely get it.
So Zina of the eyes is bowing down (to the forbidden) and Zina of the tongue is speaking (about Zina).
The mind makes its desires and wishes, the shame makes them come true or false. (Bukhari 6159)
On the authority of Abu Hurairah (RA), he said, The Messenger of Allah, may God bless him and grant him peace, was asked, “Which deed will lead the most people to Paradise?”
He said: Fear of God, virtue, and good character. Again he was asked, which action will lead the most people to hell? He said: Face and private parts. (Tirmidhi: 2004)
Why not do Muslims date non-Muslims?
Dating is haram in Islam because it leads people astray. It creates chaos in society. Distorts the sexual drive and addiction of youth.
In fact, Islam has certain methods and guidelines for men and women to spend their private time, to have romance.
If men and women meet together as directed, then peace and happiness will pass between them. And that is marriage.
Any way people approach each other, and exchange love, other than marriage is like a spider’s web at the end of the day. It has no solid foundation.
Or it is like a mirage in a vast desert. There will be only deception in the name of love.
Therefore, Islam guides Muslims to reciprocate their love through marriage.
Can a Muslim kiss a non-Muslim?
No, no it is never possible. A Muslim cannot kiss a non-Muslim girl. It is a haram, a prohibited act.
In fact, it is permissible to kiss one’s wife in Muslim life. He cannot kiss any girl or any boy other than his wife.
Therefore, as a Muslim, it is necessary to know that if a Muslim kisses another non-Muslim, it will be a sin.
Many people think that kissing non-Muslim girls is not haram like Muslim girls.
Although the Qur’an-Hadith has given guidance to Muslim girls, non-Muslims will also be under that guidance.
So it applies to everyone. It cannot be said that it is permissible to have sex with a non-Muslim plaintiff, so why not kiss a non-Muslim girl?
It should be understood here that if a non-Muslim becomes a prisoner of war, he is treated as a plaintiff.
They can be treated as wives but the daughters who are present are not plaintiffs. and They are independent people. They cannot be treated as plaintiffs.
Can Muslim date Christians?
Dating Christian girls is legal – if it is for the purpose of marriage.
But it should be noted here that Christians mean people of the book. If there is a Christian girl, who is not Ahl Kitab.
If he is not a believer in Christianity, an atheist, or does not believe in any form of faith then he cannot be dated.
Because marrying such a girl is not legal in Islam. Christian girls will be able to marry those girls according to their religious beliefs. Can date for marriage.
