Haraam relationship

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am going out with a girl and I knew her from the internet and we didn’t meet yet. I tried to stop but she is a Muslim but her parents aren’t that good in Islam. But she wants to get better in Islam so I didn’t stop. We decided not to meet until we tell our parents, so I don’t know what to do. Tell me what to do please?


A: In Islam it is impermissible for a na mahram male and female to be in contact or to have a casual relationship with each other. Apart from this being impermissible, this type of contact generally leads to many wrongs and sins taking place. You should immediately sever this relationship and sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala.

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