To check if a date is in the future in Laravel validation, you can use the after validation rule with the today or now parameter. Here’s an example of how to use the after rule to validate if a date is in the future:

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Validator;

public function validateFutureDate(Request $request)
{
    $validator = Validator::make($request->all(), [
        'future_date' => 'required|date|after:today',
    ]);

    if ($validator->fails()) {
        // Handle validation error
        // ...
    }

    // If validation passes, continue with the application logic
    // ...
}

In this example, we’re using the after:today validation rule to check if the future_date field is a date in the future, relative to the current date. If the validation fails, we handle the validation error. If the validation passes, we can continue with the application logic.

Note that you can also use the now parameter instead of today to check if the date is in the future, relative to the current date and time:

$validator = Validator::make($request->all(), [
    'future_date_time' => 'required|date|after:now',
]);

In this example, we’re using the after:now validation rule to check if the future_date_time field is a date and time in the future, relative to the current date and time. If the validation fails, we handle the validation error. If the validation passes, we can continue with the application logic.
