In our previous article, we enlightened our audience about the unlawful norms that are prevalent in the society today. We talked about how one should refrain from such unlawful norms and observe the process of courting in the Islamic manner.
Is a woman allowed to look?
Just like a man is allowed to look at the woman whom he intends to marry, a woman is also allowed to look at her intended husband. However, this does not mean that no boundaries should be observed. It is necessary that when a woman is looking at the man then it should reflect a certain level of modesty and reservation. Such traits reflect the characteristics of her humanity.
What about talking in Courting?
Is talking between the two people who intent to marry each other is always a subject of dilemma. Talking and correspondence are permissible between a man and a woman whom he is seriously considering for Nikah. However, it is important to remember that it should be done under proper controlled conditions.
What are the conditions?
While initiating a conversation between a man and a woman who are genuinely considering one another for Nikah, the woman’s and the man’s Wali or their respective representatives must keep a watch on both of them. It should be ensured that khulwah is completely avoided. There is no touching since the the man is still a non-mahram. Also, the topic of discussion should only include what is necessary to take a better decision for one another. Any kind of immodesty will result in ruining the relationship and will not be blessed by Allah.
You can do Sadqah by sharing the good knowledge that you acquire from reading our blogs with others. Surely, the more information that we spread about Islam, the better world it will be for all of us.
