We are not to look at women, and are to lower our gaze and this is clear in the 30th verse of Surat Annoor: Tell the believing men to lower their gaze as well as this Hadith: I asked the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) about (the Islamic ruling on) accidental glance (i.e., at a woman one is not Islamically allowed to look at) and ...

Let alone the naked women, Islam doesn't even allow a man to look into a woman's eyes(with lust). Every muslim is obligated to lower his/her gaze when talking or facing a person of opposite sex. An-Nūr (Ayaah 30 - 31): Tell the believing men to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Indeed, Allah is ...

First I'd like to mention that the mixing in schools, universities and is haram and very dangerous especially for young and also for adults. Because it leads to many evils and haram things. The Prophet Muhammad PBUH said in the Sahihayn: ‏ "‏ ما تركت بعدي فتنة هي أضر على الرجال من النساء‏"‏ ‏(‏‏(‏متفق عليه‏)‏‏)‏‏.‏ "I am not leaving behind me a ...

(Shia view) According to Fiqh of Shia Islam it is not obligatory. (Considering there is no other sin). But it is recommended According to a Hadith about prophet and his daughter: "Once a blind man asked for permission to enter Fatima's (Her Holiness) house but she kept a veil between them. The Messenger of Allah (SAWS) noticed her (Our Lady Fatimah (...

Quite simply, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: It is better for you to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle than to touch the hand of a woman who is not permissible to you. [Collected in Tabarani and Bayhaqi; it is saheeh.] What this means is that, generally, it is not allowed for men and women to shake hands. Why not? As Allah almighty says ...

I'll assume this question is about men looking at uncovered women; rulings for women looking at uncovered women are different. Basically it boils down to the ayah: 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. Qur'an 24:30 (Which is ...

Some Ahadeeth that prohibit shaking hands between men and women: From Umaymah bint Ruqayqah who said: ‘I came to the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- along with the women, so that we could pledge an allegiance upon Islam. So we said: O Messenger of Allah we pledge allegiance to you that we will not associate anything with ...

Umm Salamah (radiallahu anhaa), the mother of the believers (wife of Rasulullah), narrates (emphasis mine): I was with the Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) along with Maimunah (May Allah be pleased with him) when Ibn Umm Maktum (May Allah be pleased with him) (who was blind) came to visit him. (This incident took place after the order ...

TL;DR: Inheritance is a component in a dynamical system, and this component is imbalanced so that men receive a greater quantity. The system, as a whole, can favor either men or women, depending on how stingy/generous men are with maintenance and mahr. I whipped up a diagram of a 3-node discrete dynamical system model, where the nodes represent "male money"...

It was narrated that Ma’qil ibn Yassaar said: the Messenger of Allah said: “For one of you to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle is better for him than that he should touch a woman who is not permissible for him.” Narrated by al-Tabaraani in al-Kabeer, 486. Medical treatment by the opposite gender is 'permitted' during a medical ...

Yes, men may give the salam to women, even if they are not their Maharim. The obligation, or the order to give the salam and return it is general for all Muslims. When salam is given to a women, or the other way round, it must be kept professional, there is no shaking of hands, and if the women is young and there is fear of Fitnah the rule changes. But in ...

Since you're aware of the possibility of sin, there should be guidelines that you must keep in order for you to have a halal relationship. First you cannot be alone with her in a secluded area where no one can see you. This includes outdoors where no one is around. Rasolullah clearly had forbade men from being secluded with a woman who is not related to ...

Short Answer: No you cannot. This is not permissible in any way, as any and all kinds and forms of relationships outside of marriage is against the Shariah and not of Islam. If you love this women you should marry her through the way described in Islam, if not then you should stay far away from her, and she should stay far away from you. Here is some ...

An engagement is kind of like a promise to get married in the future and hence your fiancee is not your spouse and does not become your mahram. Hence all the normal rules of male-female interaction will apply (like lowering your gaze, not being alone with them, not flirting or touching etc). Your fiancee only becomes your mahram when the nikah ceremony is ...

Zina is not penetration only. There's different kinds of zina. The zina of eyes, which is looking at things one should not be looking at (porn, etc.), the zina of hand, which is touching that that is not allowed (masurbation, etc.), the zina of tongue, which is talking about all the unlawful sexual stuff one desires and then the zina of the private parts, ...

Assuming by wall you mean a gender separation, which -these days- might be found in almost all mosques around the world except al-Masjid al Haram! There was no wall separation or any kind of separation in the Mosques in the early days of Islam. As we can find ahadith/hadiths from which we could conclude that people (men) saw women praying behind them in the ...

The Logic behind this is simple A daughter is the responsibility (religious duty) of her father (read male) to provide for her needs (food, clothes, shelter, education, etc.). If she has brothers, and her father is not earning (e.g. retired) then it is the responsibility (religious duty) of her brother/s (read male) to provide for her needs (food, clothes, ...

Yes this is true, because male have responsibility to provide for the family, to live/eat and everything of the need the responsibility of the male... Instead, female get the share from the husband when they get married for example !

All perfect praise be to Allah. When it comes to the issue you are raising, you are calling it HAVING SEX OCCASIONALLY, but i suspect by the word slut and what i can sense in your question is about prostitution, and why only women are called sluts, while men are also involved in it. Islam has same ruling for both men and women involved in illegal sexual ...

Physical contact between them is not allowed except for emergency situations, such as dangerous situations. (E.g. saving from drowning, burning and such) Handshakes are not allowed except when the hand is covered by a cloth (glove and such) And it's allowed only for emergency medical situations. If there are same gender available to do the job, it is not ...

Alhour Alein are not only female. There are also male Alhour Alein. There are different verses about Alhour Alein. Some talk about female Huri but some without any gender. In Arabic when there are group mix of men and women the male pronoun is used for them. So if Quran says Huri is for them it not mean only for men. It means for them (both men and ...

Although @Fatemeh's post already contains the answer but maybe this post could help better understand her answer. The Ahadeeth of Imams of Shia, those which are known as authentic and many that are not proved to be authentic, all support and explain each other and verses of Quran. This is a claim that I make mainly based on my study of Shia literature, but ...

It is the translation mistake. As Jealousy is forbidden for all Muslims, Even men and women should not be jealous. But the jealous which is the sign of faith of the man is called. "غيرة". This word cannot be translated as jealous. It is an Ibadah for men and it is forbidden for women. Why is it forbidden for women? Because it could make women to refuse ...

The answer somehow depends on your behavior and your intention in a chat room. Basically one is allowed to greet a non-Mahram and make any thing which falls under necessary parts of conversation with him/her. So if you are chatting to seek knowledge or exchange some information etc. then everything is fine and following the rules of shari'a. But once you ...

Allah says in the Qu'ran: وَقُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَغْضُضْنَ مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِنَّ وَيَحْفَظْنَ فُرُوجَهُنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا وَلْيَضْرِبْنَ بِخُمُرِهِنَّ عَلَىٰ جُيُوبِهِنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا لِبُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ آبَائِهِنَّ أَوْ آبَاءِ بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَائِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَاءِ بُعُولَتِهِنَّ ...

Assalamu Alaikum - السلام عليكم I request you be careful of this, brother. Stuff like this are not allowed in Islam as it represents those of the disbelievers. You should visit your local Shaykh or Imam as you probably can’t leave this state easily. In Islam, these kind of things start only after marriage. Allah created you the way he deemed you to be. Seek ...

Blood Vengeance In that time, Arabs were divided into tribes and that was pretty much everything determining their lives. You can think that a tribe is a one big family. For example, if you take a wife within your tribe and someday her brother sweared to you, what would you do? A slap or a punch maybe. If he beats you, then the elders of the tribe would ...

Prophet Muhammad and prophets (p.b.u.t) in general always had some special privileges and also obligations. For example, prophet Muhammad had to pray one extra prayer, he couldn't take charity for himself, and etc. In those times Arab society was based on tribalism, and having wives from different tribes made people of each tribe to have easy access to ...
