I am a religious muslim having beard. And 1 year before I came in contact with a religious girl. I decided to marry her and talked to her family persons. She is also agreeing. Now I am in another city and we will INSHALLAH marry after 2 years with the permission of parents. I don?t want to make any contact with her as it is forbidden in Islam. I love her too much because she is so religious and I can?t forget her. I use to think about her and life after marriage. So is it permissible to think about a non mahram girl? And we are not mailing or chating or phone etc.

Respected Brother,

It is not permissible to think about a non-Mahram girl in the way mentioned. There is a high probability that one would get excited and involve oneself in sin. However, if such thoughts enter involuntarily, one should ignore them and one would not be responsible for them but if one deliberately contemplates about a non Mahram girl then this is strictly forbidden. If you love this girl so much then negotiate with the parents to get married sooner.

Wallahu A'alam
