Premarital affair

Q: I have been going out with a Muslim guy for a while. We shared a lot of things and I love him. I’m positive he loves me too. His parents say they heard some things about me and they won’t say who told them but they don’t want their son to be with me. In Islam what should have happene? I
mean he decided to make his parents happy and leave me after everything we’ve been through with each other. I need a point of view from someone who would know please advise.


A: Muslims are not supposed to be behaving in this way. Any type of premarital relationship is totally forbidden. On account of the person associating with non-Muslims he adopted their wrong ways. As a result you have to bear the brunt of your wrong and his wrong.

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