Is Chatting wrong in Islam with Na Mehram? I have this question.. plzz give me an honest answer. Do you really think that this is considered wrong in Islam?
The important thing with regard to your question is not the relationship, or the lack thereof, between the male and his female chat partner. On the contrary, the important factor is the nature and content of the ‘chat’. Nevertheless, in view of the potential emotional, moral and socio-moral repercussions of romantic chatting between young men and women, it would be highly recommended to refrain from such exchanges.
Islam does not prohibit men and women from healthy exchanges relating to their profession, education etc., yet it wants both men as well as women to adhere to the prescribed etiquette of interaction to save themselves from any negative social, moral and emotional repercussions of such interaction. Similarly, it would be highly recommended, in my opinion, for unrelated males and females to avoid engaging in overly personal exchanges with each other even on chat-channels and, thereby, save themselves from the potentially hazardous repercussions of such exchanges.
I hope this helps.
