Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

I want to know, Making female friends is a sin? I've many female friends and I usually talk them (by chat messages or text and often on call) I was used to flirt with them too, but now I'm not going to do that. All I know is talking to them (by texting or on call) is it a sin? We talks when they need me or I need them, to share something or when one of them is getting bored. Just talking friendly, formally and casually with female friends is a sin? and what about seeing their pictures normally, on facebook etc?

Socializing with females is,not allowed.

The Quranic verse is very sensitive of this issue:

Tell the believing men to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what they do.[24:30]

And some Hadeeth:

The one who touches the hand of a woman without having a lawful relation with her, will have an ember (hot coal) placed on his palm on the Day of Judgement.

Do not call on women in the absence of their husbands, because Shaitan might be circulating in you like blood circulates

Whenever a man is alone with a woman the Devil makes a third.

If you can not: a woman without mahram

2.shake hands with her alone with her

4.look at her (since you're required to lower your gaze)

then how is this friendship going to form?

Had it been permissible Sahaba's and Prophets would become friends with women.


Jazakallah Khair

I'm not going to meet, shake hands, be alone or look at her. Still my question is: chatting or texting with them is a sin or not?? Because I'm use to help everyone and everyone is use to ask for help to me. e.g. In studies, in computers problems, in their relationship problems, etc. They said I'm good helper and Advisor. Although I like to chat and help them. But with helping and chatting with them, Am I doing a sin?

Helping is fine as long as done within Shariah
