When I was in school, I committed a sin and made friends with a boy who was my friend’s brother, but she had nothing to do with it and she was innocent of my sin. When my family found out about it, they forbade me to talk to her. Now I have got married; is it permissible for me to talk to her, knowing that if I talk to her we will talk about ordinary things that have nothing to do with that boy? May Allaah reward you with good.
Praise be to Allaah.
If your talking to your

wrong with your talking to her, because that ban was only because of
negative consequences that might result from it. But it should be limited
only to talking to her, and not visiting her. It is better if it is done
with your family’s knowledge; perhaps they know something that you do not.

being thought badly of, and news of that relationship may reach the

to do that which He loves and which pleases Him, and divert fitnah
(temptation, trouble), both apparent and hidden, away from us.
