Dating in Islam is not prohibited as long as there are others around to supervise the behavior of the two people who are dating.
A mindset that recognizes the benefits of dating, while also acknowledging the drawbacks. Devastated, I told God I never again wanted to date, even if it meant a lifetime of singleness. Maybe you too have dated for years without success. We figure our future spouse is our soulmate — a perfect match who will satisfy our every desire, the one person who will finally make us whole.For most of us, though, all we see while dating is one failure after another. They continued circling my mind, driven by an unrelenting fear that I hadn't covered every contingency; I hadn't considered this quality or that characteristic, this angle or that lighting.He breaks up with you, or you end things with him; she crushes your heart, or you devastate her dreams. Perhaps more relevant, how are you as a Christian to act if you believe God has called you to marriage? As you might imagine, no girl measured up — the truth is, no one ever could. Fortunately, God had other plans for me — and I believe He has other plans for you, too.Every suitor is a potential husband, and every woman is a possible wife — not to mention father or mother of your future children. It's no exaggeration to say that outside of following Christ, who you choose to marry is the of your life.More than anything else, it will dictate your future happiness and success.
