  • Talking to the opposite sex

    As-salāmu ʿalaykum,

    My question is as follows:

    Is it permissible for a Muslim woman to interact with her female friend's husband, if her female friend is also present?

    If not, are there any cases where this is permissible, e.g. her own husband must be present as well?

    Jazāk Allāhu Khayran

    Wa alaykum as-salam

    We can search the answer for you, but if you need a ruling to a specific situation you have to ask a trustworthy Q&A service or a person of knowledge.

    Speaking in person to the opposite gender has rules and restrictions in the Sharee'ah, from them are that there should be no seclusion, the women involved must be wearing the shar'i hijab, and there should be no fear of fitnah (temptation, attraction between the genders).


    If the conditions are fulfilled, one must look at if the interaction is necessary or not, or if there is a need or not. This will decide whether the interaction is haram, blameworthy, if it's better to avoid, or if it's just allowed.

    Here is a very similar question to yours:

    "The ruling on a man talking to his friend's wife and the limits thereof"

    The summary of the answer is that if such interaction (between friends and their spouses) is accepted between them and it fulfills the above requirements, and that it is qawl ma'roof between them (appropriate speech that is accepted among them and does not cross the limits in the eyes of their culture nor in the Sharee'ah), then it is allowed.

      Hmmm. Good reminder actually. This and the other thread as well.
