PDA and Muslims

Subahan'allah, I don't want to point finger nor mention names in here, but recently, I have ran into Muslims PDA (public display of affection) Now,  I  grew  up in a society that was  50% Christians, 50% Muslims. Now this people I speak about HAVE the same culture. Let alone Muslims even the infidels didn't go far with this DPA . Holding hands, hugging or kissing in public are considered to be unobjectionable forms of public displays of affection; however, what is considered objectionable depends on the place and the people.  Even if it's your God given right (your wife/husband) there should be a limit to your affection in public.  There is a saying, "Act like your neighbors or let them act like you".It's fitna-filled atmospheres. Seems like we're getting lost in the crowd. 

I' will be honest am not sheikh, or strict  holding hands (spouse) I don't mind. But the issue is spontaneous gesture of love, that is just over the boundary .Spontaneous gestures of love need to be private, regardless of statues, married or not..  First time I experienced this it was in Airport,  Allah ya alam how many days and years he was gone. Still that is not an excuse. Handle it else where.  If this is bothering us, humans, Imagine how displeasing it is to Allah swt.


  1. Subhanallah sister this is a good post, i saw two muslims sitting opposite me the other day and well..... i wanted to ask them if they were married because they seemed young but the sister was wearing hijaab and plus i had no proof to suggest otherwise so i left it, man, not good!
    but excellent post mash Allah.

  2. Wallaahi it's crazy, funny you mentioned, them wearing hijab and acting that way . May Allah lead us to the right path.
