Communicating with a man before marriage

Q: My current fiance was previously married and told me he divorced his previous wife and she is in idah. During the idah they were seen together. Is this right? And what form of proof can I get to show that he has really divorced her and that she has sat her idah out as he has lied before about giving her the talaaq? Please advise on what I should do going forward.


A: In the first place it is not permissible for you to be communicating with this man since he is not your husband as yet. He also does not seem to be a man of scruples. Both need to correct yourselves.

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