You may try to ease your mind quickly by defining sexual relations as intercourse only, leaving all other contact as fair game.
It's a pretty good argument I've tried to use myself more than once.
For one thing, there are verses in the Qur’an which regard this type of interaction as much more serious than we would like to think.
All the mushy stuff--unfortunately for those unattached--should only be reserved for husband and wife.
However, if you are giving in to your urges and satisfying your physical desires, I suggest you fasten your seat belt before continuing to read some of the verses I come cross in the Qur’an.
There are clear verses in the Qur’an against the natural results of dating; from the seemingly innocent kiss to the more obvious.
I hate to take something from a song, much less a Beyonce song but in this case, "If you want it, then you better put a ring on it." (Of course when it comes to Muslims, you don't need a ring to get married but you get my point.)Basically, Dating makes you forget about Allah (obeying him, doing the right thing).
I am pretty sure that no matter how strong you think you are, this soul drain is bound to happen when you invite the process of premarital dating to your life.In this case, the relationship should be called a friendship, not dating, and all parties involved should have a clear understanding of this from the very beginning without any room for guesswork or temptation.Even then, what one day seems like just a friendship may develop into something more.What's the big deal with a little kiss or hand holding?Yes, I can certainly relate that it's innocent and very common, but I can assure you it's more involved than you imagine.Based on the flawed reasoning, sexual relations with someone who is rightfully yours is not as bad and makes you feel less guilty about your actions.
