Q: I do not know what to do. There was a boy and we were interested in marriage to each other. He was willing to speak to my father and planning on getting married soon insha Allah. Due to a certain fear, and doubt I have put in his mind he is now not willing to go ahead. I am shattered as its the first time I have been through this. We are really interested in one another and I would still like to marry him. With regards to our istikhara, we have both read at the same time, though with different results. He is a bit stubborn too. What do I do in this situation?
A: Don’t pay attention to these thoughts. All types of premarital relationships are haraam. Let your parents decide who is best for you.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
