Correspondence between the sexes
I am a girl who believes in Allaah and His Messenger. Is it permissible for me to correspond with a young man through what is known as the “Pen pal corner”?.
Praise be to Allaah.
It is not permissible for you to correspond
with a young man who is not a mahram for you through what is known as the “Pen pal corner”, because that is something that leads to fitnah
(temptation) and to evil and corruption.
And Allaah is the Source of strength.
