Ask an Alim

Young and in Love.

Q:

Assalamu-alaikum,
I’m an 18 year old boy and I’m deeply in love with a 15 year old girl. She feels the same towards me too. We both are aware that these kind of relationships are wrong, but it got too late when we realized this fact. We don’t want to earn Allah’s anger. But we have fallen for each other so much now. Also we haven’t done anything really bad (touching, kissing, etc). Our only contact is through texting now. I’m also really looking forward to marry her but unfortunately we are too young. What should we do? Should we inform about this to both our parents?

A:

Waalykum salam

Thank you for your Question

Yes, it’s best if you informed your parents about it so that you can Atleast rest assured that she is reserved for you. I insist on the step because it is Haram to have a relation with a non Mahram. Allah does not recognize this to be halal and hence he Doesn’t bless it.

Your parents can either recite a Mutah for you (with the condition of talking only) or assure you that they have reserved her for you.
This way you will keep away from deviation that This may have brought along, most importantly the displeasure of the Almighty.
You both are young and need to focus on many other important things.

InshaAllah all Goes well
Kind regards
