You can not touch a non-mahram.
ولا يحل له أن يمس وجهها ولا كفيها وإن كان يأمن الشهوة
It is not permitted to (even) touch the face or the hand (of a non-mahram) even when there is safety from lust
— الهداية في شرح بداية المبتدي [English]
This is because Allah has forbidden even looking at them and touching is more intimate than looking.

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.
(Which is ...
Basically, even the people holding the opinion that it isn't allowed to touch a non-mahram woman, would allow you to do so in situations where a life is on the stake.
According to this answer:
Also, Islam is a practical religion; it recognizes daroorah, or dire necessity caused by situations that may lead to death. In this case, the ruling is lightened (...
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 ...
In these three (95577, 11774 and 21536) fatwas from islamqa the author or mufti tries to proove that covering the face is the correct view of Islam. However one could find ahadith and Quran rulings that clearly oppose this view or at least don't support it. I'd like to add that instead of starting with a sahih narration or a Quran verse the argumentation ...
The short answer is a clear and undisputed no. As already explained in the response by UmH, this is because even looking at non-mahram women is not allowed.
Beyond even the obvious evidence of the subject, I will show you a hadith narrated of the Prophet (SAW) regarding a very similar situation as yours:
Allah's Messenger (SAW) said: Beware of getting, ...
At least in a public place that would be OK to some extent:
in an Islamic country greeting and what we may call necessary part of a conversation would be permissible. For example if it's a business lunch or dinner a conversation about the business would be necessary. If it's just a lunch between friends, i can't imagine that in any so called Islamic ...
Summary in brief:
Speaking with a non-mahram is permissible
Talk only what is necessary
Don't aim to entertain the lady
Keep the gaze down
Use the normal tone of speech
Be clear and quick.
It is the intention of the conversation that matters a lot.If your mind is clean, then your actions will also be clean.
My advice would be to follow your instincts - if it feels wrong, then it feels as such for a reason. I do not think (as has been suggested) that your conversation need be devoid of "fun", though others should know where you stand, and all inappropriate matters/conversation ought to be ended swiftly.
I agree that the rules in the previous post are sensible, ...
Emergencies result in relaxation or altogether abandonments of normal circumstance applications. A drowning person can not be let drowned for the reason of avoiding touching a Na-Mehram. It would simply be insane to observe such things in an emergency. Islam, As per Qura'an and several Ahadith--is a logical, rational and easy to practice religion: attending ...
Islam has many barriers...as long as you are within those barriers then you are good to go!
Though distancing yourself away from those barriers would be better... as its some sort of ورع.
Specifically to your question:
The barrier is to not:
Touch a non-mahram
Have any sort of lust for the non-mahram...or if you do by nature... just not to ...
If there was a woman around who could do abdominal thrusts/CPR then you shouldn't. BUT if there wasn't another woman around then it was perfectly fine for you to do so (as long as you "touch" only as much as needed and no more than that).. inshaAllah. Allah (ﷻ) has always given exception to dire situations, saying "except for one is forced" etc.. [eg, in Qur'...
The hadith is quoted in both sahihs (al-Bukari and Muslim)
Let's start by quoting the ahadith prohibiting what scholars call "Khulwa or Khulwah":
Ibn 'Umar narrated:
" 'Umar delivered a Khutbah to us at Al-Jabiyah. He said: 'O you people! Indeed I have stood among you as the Messenger of Allah(s.a.w) stood among us, and he said: "I order you (to stick ...
no we can not not hug or kiss our non blooded sister because she is not included in our mehram the mehram which is recognized by islam is only our blooded sister ,mother,phupho,khala,grand mother and mother in law.
Its permitted for the man to send someone else to see her on his behalf and then describe her to him, a blind man can take this option. This intermediary is either a woman relative of him or a mahram relative of woman.
The prayer of a woman does not invalidate if a man see her, even if they are non-mahrams.
However, it is forbidden for a non-mahram to enter to women in their own places because of fear of Temptation [Fitnah] except for extreme needs.
Allah the almighty says:
Prohibited to you [for marriage] are ... your brother's daughters, your sister's daughters, .... (4:23)
This means your paternal uncle is a mahram and you can therefore join him and His family to perform 'Umrah if your guardian (father, husband …) allows you to do this sunnah.

thank you for your question brother, to simplify, you asked is marrying two wives who are sisters haram (impermissible) or not in islam. My answer is that in islam it is not permissible to marry two wives who are sisters in islam mainly because it would create jealousy and problems, etc. Neverthless, the islamic ruling is that it is haram and it is not ...
Provided you are not alone with them then it is permitted for you to sit with your sisters in law if they are wearing a headscarf and dressed modestly.
But you should guard against sin and lower your gaze, especially if you are attracted to one of them. Modesty falls equally on men and women and you must observe hijab.
If you are unable to resist ...
If there is not any kind of fitna and a good intention, there is nothing wrong to look into a face of a woman in public place such as hospital, if it is necessarily and short. But it is better not to look at all as it might create an uncomfortable situation. It is better always to lower your gaze. There is a hadith which is telling that a woman should be ...
Maybe you should add the following: Are among these children male children (maybe the age?).
Basically after divorce husband and wife are foreigners (non-mahrams) and shouldn't be alone in a room. In presence of a male "mahram" (for example a son of the woman) they might be allowed to meet or in some circumstances they might meet in public.
It's forbidden for non-mahram men and women to be alone together (khulwah). However, the question is if being alone in a taxi constitutes khulwah given that people can see inside taxis. There's a difference of opinion (see below).

The reason is the same, it is to be on a safer side from falling prone to... 'falling prone to' sin. The more cautious you are, the more safer it is. And if you find it strange and confused, then it is your culture which made you get accustomed with such a thing. But, for a girl who wishes to be on a safer side, she prefers to the follow rules.
