Electronic communication limits between sexes? 8 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 0
With regard to SMS’s, MMS’s, 3G cell phones, internet chats and webcams, are there Shariah limits that our youth should be aware of when communicating with one another?

It's very important for Muslim youth to know where he stands, and to always keep in mind that, as he is given full right to make use of any golden opportunity offered by modern technology, he is also required not to forget the duty he owes the Mighty Power that subjects to him all such avenues of comfort and prosperity. He must not deviate, whatsoever, from the teachings of his religion, in order to preserve his noble identity.
Muslims have to observe the same rules for telephonic and internet communications, as they observe in writing letters. Islam does not permit love letters or intimate conversations between males and females who are not married to each other.
In all our correspondence and conversations we must observe haya' or modesty. Boys and girls should not chat with each other just for socialization or passing time. It is haram (unlawful) for a non-mahram Muslim male and female to indulge in long conversations with each other unless it is necessary for education or for business. All conversation must be decent. The Qur'an reminds us again and again that all our words are recorded and we shall be held accountable for our words as well as our deeds on the Day of Judgment. (See Al-Ahzab 33:70; Qaf 50:18)
In Islam the khalwah (privacy) with the non-Mahram female (ajnabiyyah) is forbidden. Khalwah of course occurs when a male and a female are alone in person. But a virtual khalwah can also happen through conversation by phone or Internet. Just as men and women should not be alone with each other, in a similar way they should not be alone to talk to each other on phone or via Internet chat, especially if this conversation is about personal matters.
To conclude, communication between a man and a woman should be of a goal that complies with enjoying what is good and preventing what is bad (‘amr bilma’roof wan nahy ‘anil munkar). Any communication or chatting between a man and a woman if not for a good cause, it will be a possibility for the cause of Shaytan. One should always ask him/herself why do I want to write to that man/woman or to talk to him/her? The answer will be helpful to take action. Keep far away from desire as Satan has very complicated approaches to insinuate you to deviate from righteousness
