Fatwas / Marriage and Breastfeeding / What are the limits of relationship between the fiancé and fiancée after conducting t

- Aa +

We have already conducted the marriage contract, and soon the marriage will be consummated, and I would like to know the answer for some questions that I have: What are the limits of my sexual enjoyment with my fiancé (before consummating the marriage)? What is the ‘awrah of a woman in front of a woman? What is the ruling on wedding rings? My last question is about a friend of mine who has been engaged to her cousin. They have agreed on everything, but have not conducted the marriage contract, even though there was a proposal and it was accepted. However, they live in different countries and are waiting for the approval of his government so she can join him. What are the limits they need to observe when they talk? Is he considered her husband, even if the marriage contract has not yet been concluded? حدود العلاقة بين الخطيب وخطيبته بعد عقد القران؟


All praise is due to Allah alone, and may the Salah and Salam of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his companions. To answer your question, we say while seeking all the success from Allah: First: If the marriage contract is conducted, then you are his wife and he is no longer called your fiancé. The limits of sexual enjoyment between you and your husband (before consummating the marriage), is that the man may not penetrate, until the wedding night. Therefore, I advise you not to allow him to have intercourse with you until the wedding night, but you can do foreplay with each other before the wedding night. Second: The woman must not show other woman more than what decent and chaste women normally show in front of unrelated women. Third: If the wedding ring is just a gift to the wife, and is not accompanied with the belief that not wearing it will ruin one’s [marriage] life or lead to divorce, then it is permissible. Fourth: Please see the answer in the first point above. Fifth: He is considered a non-mahram man to her; accordingly, he is not allowed to be alone with her in privacy or talk with her or even write to him in a way that is soft, tempting or seductive.

Your brother,
