Engagement no.2

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
while you are engaged are you allowed to have any physical contacts with your fiance and i do not mean sex i mean like kissing and holding hands?

Answer
Bismillah

Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

No, this will not be permissible. The purpose of engagements is a promise and confirmation to marry. At that stage, the boy and girl are still strangers to one another in that they cannot even communicate with one another. Hence, Interaction between a non-Mahram man/woman are not acceptable in Islam. It is better to perform the Nikah and then one can therefore interact in a ‘halal’ atmosphere.

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
