This was not there in North America before the Second World War.
The women used to wear long chaste dresses and their dating did not involve the close intimacy that we see today.
A question arises as to how they met each other before their marriage? They had probably met at work and dated each other.
In the past Muslims did not date because of arranged marriages.
The second group I call "Eid Muslims," because many are not strict in practice and attend mosques only on holidays.According to the Qur'anic commands unmarried men and women should maintain their chastity until marriage. The Prophet (peace be upon him) also reportedly said, "Whenever a man is alone with a woman, Satan (Shaytan) is the third among them" (Tirmidhi).When young people are getting to know each other, being alone together is a temptation toward wrongdoing. However, it is not allowed in Islam to take a non-mahram person or persons of the opposite gender as a very close friend. In the Quran, Allah subhanahu wa taala mentioned that good men and women are those who marry, do not have fornicating relationships and do not have paramours (akhdan see al-Nisa ; al-Maidah 5:5).At all times, Muslims should follow the commands of the Qur'an (-31) to "lower their gaze and guard their modesty...." Islam recognizes that we are human and are given to human weakness, so this rule provides safeguards for our own sake. Muzammil Siddiqui answers " Muslims should have good elations with all people, males as well as females. Akhdan are sweethearts or for a man a mistress and for a woman a lover.The Prophet - peace be upon him - said, whenever two strangers of the opposite gender are alone with each other, Satan becomes the third one between them.
