I am a newbie on this site. Islam.com . I am AZEEM from Nigeria.
The moment i registered with this site. I became confused of some things. My muslim brothers and sisters or anyone having an answer or a suggestion to my question, please reply me and make my doubts get clarified.
What is dating? What is courtship? And what is meant by "having a girlfriend/ girl lover or a boyfriend or boy lover"?
I am getting more confused. Make this things clear to me.
The following are defined in the Oxford Thesaurus of English:
Going out regularly with someone who is a close friend, usually of the opposite sex.
The period of engagement before marriage.
The sweetheart; lover; fiancée of a man.
The sweetheart; lover; fiancée of a woman.
The following are not defined, so I would have to guess:
This expression is new to me. Possibly the female lover of another female
Again, this expression is new to me. Possibly the male lover of another male
I hope this helps.
okay. Thanks for ur answer. But is dating in ISLAM a kind of unclean act? And which time is it right for a muslim to court? Is it permissible to have a girl friend?
