Friendship of Male and Female in Islam

What is the Islamic concept of friendship of male and female??? Taking care of Islamic limits, can a man and a woman have friendship relationship??? Now a day, especially in Universities and colleges, where there is co-education, male and female?s friendship is a common thing, does Islam allow this????

A lot depends on the connotation of this word 'friendship' and what they understand of the Islamic Limits.

Placing aside the word 'friendship',Islam enjoins both genders to obeserve some NORMS. Observing these NORMS, all men and women are allowed to interact with each other as and when necessitated by the circumstances let alone the students.

These etiquette have amply been explained in Surah Noor (24). Like having modesty in your gaze, covering your body well and not doing anything which distracts attention to evil thougts. Observing these etiquette, I would rightly use the words being Muslim Brother and Sister as contrast to being friends.

We must know that purity of heart is a precious ASSET of ours. We must never lose it at any cost. I personally do not feel aversion to principled communication yet all people should judge their circumstances keepin in view the objective of Innet Purification.

Assalamo alaikum,

The male and female relationships, with best of intentions, observing the social values, do not seem to be objectionable.
