Is dating haram in islam
While I understand and sympathize with that struggle, it is important to make clear that just because something is the norm in one’s society, does not justify participating in it.In the society that the Prophet (sal-Allahu alayhi wa-sallam) lived, burying little girls alive was the norm.
" You commit no sin by announcing your engagement to the women, or keeping it secret. Do not meet them secretly, unless you have something righteous to discuss.
