On Facebook I get a lot of messages from muslim brothers who come across my profile who greet me with salam, and at first I used to say waalaykomassalam in response, and then they expected a conversation which was usually regarding how they were looking to see if I was interested in marriage to them. Seeing as I am not looking for marriage, especially by random strangers, now I don't respond to them at all in order not to waste my time having a pointless conversation with them. Is it okay that I am not responding to their salams? I have heard on several occasions that you MUST respond to salams.
Assalam o alikum sisters, I have a problem that is difficult to handle for me, actually I am studying in a university with co-education system. We prefer to take skype and fb video lectures and attend live sessions instead of regularly attending the university. so we all classmates discuss our assignments and projects via facebook.etc and our teachers also join us. You can say its a kind of distance learning. Now there is a boy in my class, who asked me that he wants to be my brother(I never met him face to face, have a contact with him on fb), i thought there isn't anything wrong in calling someone "brother" as i am used to call everyone in my class "brother". after that he started messaging me most frequently even without any important thing to be discussed and i felt that he praises my every single word and work. but I always felt strange with this relation as he already have five sisters, why he pretends that he cannot live without texting me. But as he is my class fellow so I didn't take these things seriously. Well, now after 6 months with this brother-sister relation, he asks me that as I have become his sister so there isn't any need to hide myself in front of him.(I always cover myself and with male classmates or while attending live sessions, I prefer to cover my face too (to avoid any awkward situation), But he says he wants to see my picture without hijab. (I am not in the favor of sending my picture to any non-mahram even when I am wearing hijab). I don't understand how to refuse him ? I refused him in a decent manner, but he says "you don't have any need to hide yourself in front of me as i am your brother", I said "you know, you are not my actual brother" and he starts arguments with me that I am too rigid when it comes to follow Islamic rules and I don't know how to respect others and how to compromise and that he is my brother and I am not following his orders, we must cut-off and we must not be in contact with one another anymore. The problem is that I don't want to create a strange atmosphere in my classroom and I am also afraid to make anyone mad at me for some reason. Have I done anything wrong, or would it be wrong to end this relation and contact also ? What must I do now ?
Asalamalekum, Man are told to lower their gaze when they see a non mahram women, so they don't indulge in sexual sins. My question is that in the west, most women dress provocatively and inappropriately where ever you go. Most of the time a man can look away in such cases. But what about when it is neccesary to interact and have conversation with them like at job, grocery stores etc. What does a believer do, is it halal to talk to these womens when it is neccesary, or what about when it is not required. But can a man has coversation with non mahram or non hijabi women as long as it is withoit carnal desires? I am under taqleed of Ayatollah sistani, and read his fatwas, but i am little confused and try to get some opinions? thank you!
