    Adultery is forbidden in Islam, and the fact that one can’t afford to get married doesn’t make it permissible. The correct approach would be to explore options that would allow you to earn a living sufficient enough to afford a family.

    my one friend is arguing, that this is not our fault, it’s society’s fault.

    They’re the one, who not letting us because financially stable. They even made it worse through pandemic.

    If Islam is Deen-e-Fitrat, than it must realize current ground reality and tolerate forced financial unstableness. Does forced social system is our fault? Are we going to be punished for that, as we are not enabling any family through protection?

    Fornication is one of the three big sins that are mentioned in Islam (polytheism, Murder and fornication)

    Islam is Deen-e-Fitrat, but Mutah is a filthy practice … if anyone knowingly engages in this practice then it’s equivalent to openly denying God’s directives about what constitutes a valid Nikah.

    Try to focus on what you can improve to gain meaningful monetary stability in future (e.g. getting a second job or learning a new skill/trade)

    No need to rush for marriage if you don’t feel comfortable/ready.

    Also, marital life doesn’t have to be lavish. If things gets tough then both: husband & wife can work to overcome financial challenges.

    Islam is deen-e-fitrat but it does not mean that it will allow you to commit crimes. Breathing is in your fitrat – if God forbidden you get a lung disease, should Islam allow you to murder another person and steal his lungs?

    If you cannot control your desires. There is a Hadith which u can follow
    Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: 0 young men, those among you who can support a wife should marry, for it restrains eyes from casting (evil glances). and preserves one from immorality; but those who cannot should devote themselves to fasting for it is a means of controlling sexual desire. Sahih Muslim Book 8, Number 3231
