You explain that dating is needed since arranged marriages are not feasible.
I asked him not to call me; because I feel this is wrong, although I love him.I felt that our love started going in the direction, he agreed to this feeling, and respected my opinion.He just sends me E-mails every so often via internet, so that I know his news.(Such as, kissing, holding hands, cuddling, meeting in private etc) 2) Forbidding relationship between men and women which does not involve any haram interactions before marriage. May Allah bless you for showing me the straight path.I asked the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) about (the Islamic ruling on) accidental glance (i.e., at a woman one is not Islamically allowed to look at) and he ordered me to turn my eyes away.There are many many rulings on dating and relationships by various people, fatwās, and scholars, such as this. I want to say that I trust only in Allah and his Angels, the Holy Quran, and Prophet Muhammad, but not in any other worldly people when it comes to how to live my life.So my question is, is there any direction citation from the Holy Quran, or Prophet Muhammad (but no more than these two) that talks explicitly about: 1) What are haram interactions apart from anything to do with sexual organs according to Quran?Just as Allaah imposed the condition of chastity on women, meaning that they refrain from zinaa, so it is also imposed on men. So they should be ghayr musaafiheen, meaning they should not be adulterers who do not refrain from sin and do not refuse any who come to them (for immoral purposes).Nor should they be muttakhidhi akhdaan, meaning those who have girlfriends or female lovers with whom they have an exclusive relationship, as quoted above from Soorat al-Nisaa’.In fact, the Prophet (sws) has told us that those who follow the right path will always be ‘different’ or ‘strange’ to the mainstream.In one beautiful hadith, the Prophet (sws) says: (Ahmad) Secondly, you state the concern of getting to know someone for marriage.
