Writing a letter to the woman one intends marrying

Q: If one intends to marry can he write a letter to the woman to state what he intends from the marriage?


A: Any form of contact before nikaah is impermissible. You should convey your message via the senior people of her family e.g. her parents.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
