I am 16, and I live in Cali. There's this hot chik that i'm eyeing at school and I think I'm on to something. But I recently read that sex before marriage is haram.

Here's my question, is having premarital sex haram if you use a condom?

Here's my reasoning:

If you're allowed to touch a women (handshake, handing papers, salute) you aren't allowed to do it physically. But when you use a cloth in between you are allowed to. (varies between scholars and some hadith say yes while others say no")

So technically you could use a condom, so you aren't actually touching the women with your private part.

And you would wear clothing over the rest of your body also so that you don't touch her with any other parts (i.e shoulder, mouth, chin).

I am simply thinking, I'm not rushing into anything. As the shaikhs qoute the Quran:

Indeed, the most disliked created beings in the Sight of God are the deaf and the dumb who do not use their intellect. (Quran, 8:22)

You shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain, and you are responsible for using them. (Quran, 17:36)
