Ask an Alim

Talking to a person who likes you, but not married yet.



My question is that for example a guy likes you and you like him back but we are far far away from each other and he has expressed his wish to marry me and although I know we arent married yet, is talking to him haram?? As in the talking like most friends do and not the other haram talk?


Wa Alaikum al-salam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh

Thanks for your question

According to the website of Ayatollah sistani, “All kinds of relations with a non-mahram including joking, expressing mutual love, talking with the intention of deriving pleasure, looking at the body of a girl (except her face and hands up to the wrists) and at her hair or looking at her face with pleasure are Haram (forbidden). In fact, if it is feared that they might fall into a sin, it is forbidden for them to have any kind of relationship with

each other.”


so if there is fear of falling into sin, it is forbidden
