I had a doubt about engaged man and woman. Is it permissible for an engaged women and man to have sex and go out together and touch each other

Therefore, it'd not be permissible for an engaged couple to go out together, touch each other and to have sex. It's strictly prohibited

  • I thought there is no concept of engagement in Islam. Directly marriage. Is my assumption wrong?

    engagement is just a cultural thing, it has nothing to do with Islam directly (keeping in Shariah limits)
