Question

Is it haram or a sin to express your love through online chat because we are miles away. I love this guy so much and everyday I am thinking of him, wishing he would marry me someday. Please advice me. Alhamdulillah for your great effort and time

Answer

Respected sister, even if a man is engaged with a woman, he is still a non-Mahram until the actual Nikah is made. Meeting alone, expression love through online chatting or going out with this person is not allowed for her. It is required to observe complete Hijab with him until the Nikah is done.

Islam does not encourage pre-marriage love relationships between a male and female who are non-Mahram to each other. There are limits in Islam regarding love relationships before marriage. Please read more in this article:

(Ask Allah to ease difficulty, clean the heart to focus on good deeds. Also ask Allah to show you if that person is really sincere to you or not).

A religious person is better for both this life and hereafter. 'Religious' does not mean who prays and fast only - the definition is 'who abstains from all sins' - this includes our dailiy life, food, finances, dress, full hijab and Niqab, manners and purification of heart - read the article and Khutbah on our site and listen to leactures ..
inshaAllah your knowledge will increase.

Make your choice for Taqwa(piety), beauty of Seerah instead of just looking for the apparent beauty.
