Dating is haram

What's the big deal with a little kiss or hand holding?Yes, I can certainly relate that it's innocent and very common, but I can assure you it's more involved than you imagine.For one thing, there are verses in the Qur’an which regard this type of interaction as much more serious than we would like to think.All the mushy stuff--unfortunately for those unattached--should only be reserved for husband and wife.And aside from that, how about learning the Islamic basics of marriage, the rights of the spouse and readying yourself to making a lifetime commitment?Some time would definitely have to be invested on your spiritual education which should be a higher priority than your financial and career development.Based on the flawed reasoning, sexual relations with someone who is rightfully yours is not as bad and makes you feel less guilty about your actions.If you think about this line of reasoning carefully, you will find some big problems.

The real challenge to your faith starts when the attention shifts away from the needs of your soul to the needs of your body and drains your efforts to increase your remembrance of God.

By that time, the "rightfully yours" dream date may be out of your life and you realize your useful excuse provided temporary pleasure at a great expense to your soul.

The main problem with the rightfully yours argument is that this Quranic statement has nothing to do with supporting dating intentions.

Typically, the word dating is used when a guy and a girl develop both an intimate physical and social relationship together.

The physical part is as simple as holding hands and gradually evolves into hugging, kissing and eventually S-E-X.
