I am a girl i was in a haram relationship we broke up,repented. Now he proposed to me for marriage and wants to talk to my parents. I have told my parents about the guy they agreed to get me married to him but they wont allow me to marry before my elder sister.Now the guy and me are we in an Islamic engagement? If yes can we wait for 1 year before we can fulfill the marriage contract?
The custom of marrying daughters in order of their birth is not Islamic, your parents have to give you in marriage first before you fall into haram relation again. Their acceptance of the proposal is not a marriage contract and hence, he is still a stranger to you and you must not have any type of communications with him.
