Q: Is it permissible to be friends with a male ( a classmate ) where we talk abt studies as well & like friends as well but without any wrong intention?
A: What is meant by “friends as well”? We need to be careful here, if there is any fear of falling into temptation, then it should be avoided. The appropriate boundaries must be maintained such as avoiding unnecessary talk, improper clothing, seclusion in private areas and so on.
