I have from my parents that love marriage is not legal. However, many Muslim youths in Hong Kong, where I live, is doing love marriages. They say that premarital love affairs on the purpose of marriage is legal. They claim that premarital affairs, on the purpose of marriage, is legal, but premarital sex, premarital, kisses and premarital holding hands are not legal. However, I always hear from Islamic scholars in my country that it is illegal. Is love marriages actually legal? Can you give a brief, detailed description of this answer? If Islamic scholars claim that love marriages is illegal, why do Muslim youths do love marriages and say it is legal?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

It is Haram to be in such a relationship. Hence, love marriages are not allowed.

And Allah knows best .
