Love and attraction towards the opposite sex before marriage is something that is not under one’s control, but our Lord, may He be glorified, has explained how to deal with it in the verse in which He says (interpretation of the meaning):
“There is no blame upon you for that to which you [indirectly] allude concerning a proposal to women or for what you conceal within yourselves. Allah knows that you will have them in mind.

This is a reflection of the human spirit; we hope for light at the end of the dark tunnel, and if we have tranquillity and joy, we want to keep it that way.Continue reading

I have a relationship with a man through email only. I want to put a final stop to this relationship, but I cannot do that; I stop it for a while, then I go back to it. I would like you to tell me about the negative impact of this relationship and the harm I am causing to my religious commitment and to my own soul; do not tell me that the relationship will develop further, because I trust myself and I do not speak to him on the phone or meet him. How can I control myself? I want some reasons that will convince me to give him up; I want a detailed answer with steps I can take to leave him. I have recently found out that he is married.
