Dear respected Mufti

i have been dating a muslim girl for the past four and a half years, and we have grown very close to each other,personally and physically, we both have went through alot of sacrifice to be with each other .we have always loved each other and planned on nikkah but suddenly she tells me that she is not sure, and that she doubts our relationship, and wants to read istiqarah. what do you suggest that i do?or tell her?

JazakAllah for your time and Effort, May Allah forgive us all.

Both are allowed to make 'Istikhaara' and consulation.

You have not done any holy alliance which cannot be invalidated. In fact this 'dating' is absolutely Haraam,

It is best to reconsider.
