Question : #836 Category: Social Interaction
Subject: Online penpals
Question: Salamn alaykum

I am studying foreign language in school and i decided to find a penpal online to help me improve in that language. I have found a penpal who is a girl and i am a boy.

It would be sad for me and especially for her if our friendship stopped because she has begun to trust me and has often talked to me about her problems and the problems which she faced during childhood which still haunt her today. I feel that often she needs me for support.

Apart from that we talk about our differences in culture, religion (i share with her islamic perspectives in general and often when giving advice), current affaires, school life, and general conversation like "how are you?" "What have you got planned for today?". We contact each other via writing and skype video calls.

Am i allowed to maintain this relationship if i dont lead myself into haraam, and control my thoughts and desires? Is it atleast possible to maintain contact with her?

Our Sheikh will respond to this question in the coming days Insha'Allah, check again soon
