Sexual Relationship In Islam:
Being a Muslim and living in an Islamic state, we have to follow the rules and regulations of our religion and society. Having an intimate or sexual relationship is only religiously and lawfully legal when married to your partner.

So, the first thing that should be clear in your mind is that having an intimate relationship is only legal or halal when you are married to your partner.
In other cases, the sexual relationship is considered zinna. Zinna is a sinful act in Islam that has strict punishment according to Islamic sharia.
