I know that inappropriate interaction with the opposite gender is impermissible. But what is considered "inappropriate"? to get to know their personality, to the opposite gender before your Nikkah/ engagement?


Haya is the true jewel of every sister, and the fabric and foundation of an Islamic society. In Islam, a sister is regarded as a treasure, preserving her modesty and chastity.

Every sister has a diamond which is her honor and dignity. May Allah protect them from the trials and evils of the outside world, Ameen!

Please review this lesson based on the Noble Quran, Hadith and lifestyle of the pious - on the importance of Haya, protection of eyes and protecting the honor and dignity of woman. A humble reminder for every sister, mother and daughter in the Ummah!

For the daughters of the Ummah - dignity of woman

A Muslim woman is shy, has lots of Haya, does not talk to non-Mahram except when it is necessary, with respect and grace. Full Hijab is necessary whenever you face a non-Mahram.

How observing Hijab brings piety and purity in society? How leaving Hijab leads to sins and shamelessness? A definitive guide which present the Quranic verses and hadith on the subject, along with the opinions of scholars, so that those seeking the life of piety may find guidance. This book is for Muslim sisters who ask:

'What is the proper and best way I can practice hijab, as it was practiced by the Prophet's (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) community?"

Even if a man is engaged with a woman, he is still a non-Mahram until the actual Nikah is made. Meeting alone or going out with this person is not allowed for her. It is required to observe complete Hijab with him until the Nikah is done.

Islam does not encourage pre-marriage love relationships between a male and female who are non-Mahram to each other. There are limits in Islam regarding love relationships before marriage. Please read more in this article:

Why is Hijab necessary?

May Allah make every Muslim sister pious, pure and chaste, and protect them from any disgrace in Dunya and Akhira, Ameen!

And Allah knows best.
