Relationship - Mutah

Q:

Assalam O Alaikum! I’m actually in a dilemma right now... I have been in a relationship with this guy for 7 years now who lives in another country, our parents know about our relationship and both of our families have quite friendly terms with each other, inshallah we’ll be getting married by next year.. but suddenly I have stopped talking to him because I’ve come to know that Islam does not permit such relationships. He’s a little depressed about it and keeps pushing me to talk back to him because after all we’re getting married.... what should I do?

A:

Waalaykum Salam

Since you plan on getting married soon, the best thing you could do is become Mahram with one another I.e. recite a Mutah
