A question arises as to how they met each other before their marriage? They had probably met at work and dated each other.
In the past Muslims did not date because of arranged marriages.
Parents have the support of the community in finding spouses for their children.
Relatives, networking, social gatherings particularly weddings, make arranging marriages easier.
At all times, Muslims should follow the commands of the Qur'an (-31) to "lower their gaze and guard their modesty...." Islam recognizes that we are human and are given to human weakness, so this rule provides safeguards for our own sake. Muzammil Siddiqui answers " Muslims should have good elations with all people, males as well as females. Akhdan are sweethearts or for a man a mistress and for a woman a lover.
