College life dating
This is why in college you find a whole generation that does what they want.
Life's short they say, let's enjoy ourselves while we can. In college you find the most amazing things, Muslims who don't pray, Muslims who date, Muslims who attend MSA meetings but go out to parties and drink. For one, when students go off to university they finally realize that what they believed in was blind. Islamic culture to them means marrying someone they never knew.
We shouldn't go to a club thinking we are only going to 'hang out and are not doing anything wrong' then feel guilty about it later.
We shouldn't go on a date or drink, then feel guilty about it, worrying about hellfire. On the Day of Judgement it will be us alone who will be asked about our actions.
Drinking and all the harms that come with it is cut off at the root in Islam.
Sex in western culture is also often seen as a vice or a sin of the flesh. Young people live for the day when they can move out of the house and go to college and finally be free.Freedom from their parents, from restrictions on their lifestyle, from everyone telling them what to do.Religion becomes like Father Christmas, when they got old enough, they knew better than to believe in it. It means arranged marriages and never hanging out or having fun. It would mean double standards or having to serve a husband the rest of her life.Most have little knowledge about Islam and have maybe memorized the right rituals to get by. The western alternative to this looks a lot more attractive.
In western culture "love and romance" are supposedly everywhere. Meeting someone, going out, seeking pleasure sounds a lot better. For love at first sight, you need to have the right image, the right hair, and the right clothes.
