  • Can a non Muslim woman hug a Muslim woman?

    If the question is stupid I apologise.

    I was talking to a client today who said that I had helped her so much that she would like to hug me but thought that because I was a Muslim woman she wasn't allowed to. Questioned that a bit further snd it turns out she grew up with a Moroccan family n once when she went to hug the mans new wife, he said 'don't touch my wife'!!!!

    So just curious as to whether or not there is an Islamic position on this, short of tracking down the brother and asking him.

    N no, she didn't hug me. We shook hands.

    Yea we can an we can even loosen our hijab with them or take it off (so long as awrah is covered).

    It's dodgy females and strange men who :mujahida: we gotta keep our guard up against

        N I 'm sure I read somewhere we have to observe hijab in front of non Muslim women. Loosening is diff from taking off right

          From what I know we can take it off but make sure that they aren't the spreading type as in they ain't gonna go around saying "ooooo that girl who covers up down the street has gawjussss hair etc".

          I don't take my hijab off in front of the non Muslim women unless they're docs but I don't take my hijab seriously around them if that makes sense.

              That hapenned to me once

              Doing wudu in toilets n colleague came in- caught me without hijab. So back at desk, why do you need to wear that, so pretty, hijab just covers up your beauty blah blah blah

              And then I was told that I would never find a husbsnd if I kept my hijab on. I just said I wouldn't want that kind of husbsnd anyway

                poor woman if that was the case, why on earth would a muslim have said that to her i dont know. theres nothing wrong with hugging another woman muslim or not.

                i kiss and hug women if its appropriate, its normal for us to do that where i come from and as others have said not problem as long as they dont have any funny ideas..

                        Not sure, but I wouldn't take it kindly if a stranger hugs me regardless of the reasons.

                        So I guess not everyone takes it kindly with intimate displays of affection

                          As a general rule, I wouldn't be comfortable with a non-believer hugging me. If it was my job to help them then I would do my best, but I wouldn't want them thinking that there was any closeness between us, just a professional relationship. I would happily save all my warmth and affection for my sisters in Islam.
                          Allah is so Great and Merciful that although we continue to disobey Him, He still awaits for our repentance so that He may forgive us.

                            oh no sis, professionally i'm aware taht this is not correct but i'm relating more to the incident she was talkinga bout where she went to hug a muslim woman and her husband stopped her.

                            generally, most of my friends are muslim women but i do have some friends, not close close friends but friends who are non -muslim so it would be good to know
