Islam and dating by abdul malik
Allah ta'ala has forbidden fornication and everything that can get close to adultery (See Hirosatul Fadhilah by Shaykh Bakr Abu Zayd, Hal.
94-98) as his word: "And come not nigh to fornication, adultery is actually a heinous act and an evil way. Syaikh Muhammad ibn Saleh al-Uthaymeen was asked about the relationship of love before marriage (dating).
From Ibn Abbas RA said: I heard the Messenger of Allah SAW said: "Let not a man two-pair (Khalwat) with a woman except with mahram." (Narrated by Bukhari 9 / 330, Muslim 1341).
From Jabir ibn Samurah said: Rasulullah SAW said: "No one of you two-pair with a woman, because the devil will be the third." (Narrated by Ahmad, 1 / 18, Tirmidhi, 3 / 374 with Saheeh isnaad , see Takhrij Misykah 3188).
The term "Islamic Courtship" was just there in a fantasy, and there never was its form.
God ordered men to bow his view, as His Word: "Say to the believing men that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts; that is purer for them; surely Allah is Aware of what they do." (Surat An-Nur: 30).
As this was also ordered to believer women, Allah says: "And say to the believing women that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts " (Surat An-Nur 24: 31).
Allah says: "and do not display their ornaments except what appears thereof, and let them wear their head-coverings over their bosoms" (Surat An-Nur 24: 31). say to your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers that they let down upon them their over-garments; this will be more proper, that they may be known, and thus they will not be given trouble; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful." (Surat al-Ahzab 33: 59).
Commands to cover aurat also applies to all types, as a hadeeth: from Abu Sa'eed al-Khudri RA said: Rasulullah SAW said: "Let not a man looking at male genitalia, as well as the women do not see female genitalia." (Narrated by Muslim 1 / 641, Abu Dawood, 4018, 2793 Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah 661).
