|The Ruling on Speaking to a Women on the Telephone|
What is the ruling if a young, unmarried man spoke with a young unmarried women on the telephone?
It is not permissible to speak with an unrelated woman in a manner which may excite desire, such as by speaking words of love, flirting and subduing one’s voice , whether on the telephone or otherwise. This is in accordance with the words of Allah, Most High:Then be not soft in speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease (of hypocrisy, or evil desire for adultery, etc.) should be moved with desire& As for speaking when there is a need, there is no objection to it, as long as it is free from corruption, but only in cases of necessity.
