Is it wrong for me to go out and date Muslim girls?


Dating is against the very spirit of the social etiquette of Islam. Islam lays its social structure on the basis of a permanent relationship between a man and a woman in the form of a family. This relationship comes into existence in the form of an everlasting marriage bond. Consequently, to preserve this marital relationship, it forbids all forms of temporary associations between a man and a woman. Such associations not only hamper this social structure from coming into being but also contaminate the soul of the two. When they meet in private, base emotions are bound to be stirred. This can lead to extremely unwanted situations.
