Premarital relationship

Q: My problem is that I was in love with a man in 2008 and he is a Pakistani just like me but he is from Saudi Arabia. He wanted to marry me and I wanted to marry him but then something strange happened to me... I became possessed by a jinn... but that's not the real problem... My problem is that whenever my younger brother is not in front of me, he is harassing me from behind my back and whenever he is in front of me it goes away... and the thing is whenever he jokes around with me (and this is with me only)... he is lying to my face like he would say I am older than you now I got my birthdate changed and so and so...

Moreover sheikh type of beards don't run in my family and he had a jawline beard and then then changed it to a pencil beard like the man that I love and then suddenly my whole life is vanishing in front of me...

Everybody that I love, my friends and the man that I love and wanted to get married to (and remember we haven't done anything haraam yet just following the Islamic shariah) they are suddenly out of my life.

Now 10 years later (this happened in 2008) in 2018 he has a sheikh type of a beard and I am saying wow I didn't want my husband to have a beard. It's like he is reading my mind and everything... and now I suddenly feel attracted to a celebrity named Criss Angel who is a Christian and he is just alluring me but he is 50 years old and I am only 29 years old.

I just saw a recent picture of him and he is starting to have a face with no youthful look anymore and all his other pictures he is young in them... but whenever my little brother comes in front of me all my memories of the guy I loved in 2008 come back in front of me and I just wish I could go to Saudi ArabiA and get out of America sometimes.

A: All premarital relationships are haraam in Islam. Make tawbah to Allah Ta'ala and ask him to bless you with a pious and suitable spouse.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
