Question: I recently care about a few issues. I recently read that it is not allowed to meet with the girls, so the question is: What is meant by the meeting? Is it allowed to kiss before Nikah? (Radik)
With the name of Allah, the merciful to all in this world and in the hereafter only merciful to the believers.
As-Salam Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakaatuhu!
As a general rule, men are not allowed to look at another woman (non-mahram) and vice versa. Pointing that we find in the Holy Quran where God commanded that men and women lowered their eyes:
“And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers, their brothers' sons, their sisters' sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed”. (The Quran, 24:31)
Norms of Islam always adequate and perfect. When it comes to marriage, the rules governing the views of the opposite sex, in a sense, are mitigated. Well, if the prospective bride and groom before nikah will be able to view each other. Note that here we mean exactly look. Touch and privacy are not permitted.
As noted above, if a man seriously intends to marry, it is permitted to him to go and see his alleged wife. There are a lot of hadith indicates that it is permissible, for example:
Jabir Ibn Abdullah reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
“When a man is going to ask for the hand of a girl with a purpose of marriage, if he is able to look at what will induce him to marry her, he should do so”. (Abu Dawood, no 2082)
As for your other question, intimate relationships, kissing, or any form of physical contact is not permissible before nikah.
And Allah knows best.
