Q: I met a girl on facebook 2 weeks ago. We became good friends in only one day and the second day I told her that I love you. She also responded
positively but after two days I prayed namaz and I felt very guilty of myself for getting involved in such a henious practice as I had never done this before. So I told her to forget me and I cut off all the contact with her but now she is saying that you betrayed me. She regularly calls me but I don’t pick up her calls. I only left that girl for the sake of Allah. Please help me out, have I done right or have I betrayed her really? Will I be punished for
hurting her? What should I do now? Please help me mufti sahb.
A: You had betrayed Allah’s love. Hence, you should be ashamed and make excessive taubah and disregard the stupidity and the ridiculous response of this girl.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
