Check Out What The Quran Says About Boyfriend And Girlfriend (An-Nisaa': 25)

Muslims should establish positive relationships with all people, both men and women, at school, work, and in their communities. Everyone should be treated with respect. In Islam, however, it is forbidden to have a very close friend who is not a mahram or of the other gender.


But this type of friendship frequently leads to haram. And according to the Qur'an, decent men and women are those who marry, do not engage in fornication, and do not have "paramours" or Akhdan (see An-Nisaa': 25).


Akhdan are "sweethearts" or "mistresses" for men and "loveres" for women. "Whenever two strangers of opposite gender are alone with each other, Satan becomes the third one between them," the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, is said to have said. (At-Tirmidhi)”

As a result, a Muslim boy cannot have a girlfriend, and a Muslim girl cannot have a boyfriend. Whatever your intentions are, there is a risk that they will lead you to sin. Or, at the very least, you'll have more time alone with each other.


For Muslims, only marriage is permitted. When you are able to marry, Prophet Muhammad advised you to marry the girl of your heart. You are free to enter her at any time. She is the flower in your garden.
