Concept of Soul-mates

Q: Is it possible that one would recognise your soul-mate by just seeing them?
A: The concept of a soul-mate is not recognized in Islam. Rather, it is a Western concept. Many youth labour under the false concept of soul-mate recognition, and in the process become intimate with females. This is totally Haraam (prohibited). The closest to the soul-mate concept we find in the Shariah is the Nikah (marriage) of a person; one’s spouse is written down in Taqdeer (predestination).
