I have looked it up before, wether dating is haram or not, and have got very mixed opinions. Is it haram to date as a muslim?, and if so is it halal dating?
Dating in Islam for the sake of having fun with the opposite sex, without having a proper and legal Islamic marriage is consider as forbidden (Haram).
Al-Israa' (17:32) :
"Nor come nigh to adultery: for it is a shameful (deed) and an evil, opening the road (to other evils)."
The main reason Islam forbids dating is to protect both parties from any kind of sexual lust (Zina).
However, meeting up for further recognition for the sake of finding a suitable spouse is allowed (Halal) with the present of the girl's mahram.
