Let's celebrate LOVE........... THE HALAL WAY...

Love is indeed a beautiful thing that God bestows upon human beings so that we can find comfort and tranquility in one another, as mentioned in the Quranic verses:

"and among His signs is this; that He created for you mate from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts). Verily, in that are signs for those who reflect."{Quran. 30:21}

but at the same time, love can be a poison if it is used in distorted manners. Common examples would be premarital relationship (i.e couple)that is widely spreading among today's youths who believe that such relationship is a way to find their 'Mr. or Mrs Right'.

"...and do not come near zina /adultery; for it is a shameful (deed) and an evil, opening the road (to other evils)" {Quran: al-Isra';32}

when Islam prohibits something, it is also closing all the avenues approaching to it, by prohibiting every steps and means leading to the unlawful deeds(Haram). Accordingly, whatever excites passions, opens way to illicit sexual relations a man and a woman, and promotes indecency, is regarded as Haram. It is absolutely clear from the verses that Islam does not allow men and women without marital relationship to mingle with each other whenever and however
they like. Islam has placed clear regulations and restrictions upon such behavior and has defined the limits of interact between men and women.

Remember, there is no entry in Islam that permits close relationship between male and female before marriage. If we want to build a faithful family, we can never build it on what Allah has stated as wrong and proven false by the way Rasulullah p.b.u.h. has taught us. A happy and blessed family came from Allah; we can't expect Him to give us one if we did the wrong thing from the very beginning.

The Prophet p.b.u.h. also said:"It is better for one of you to be pierced by a steel pin in his head than to touch the hand of a strange woman."[Al-Mundhiri mentions that all the narrators of this hadith are trustworthy. Al-Albani classifies it as a good hadith in Ghayah al-Maram(no.403)]
