(Fatwa: 202/L)


(1) It is unlawful for women to meet non-Mahram men without Hijab or mix with them:

قال اللہ تعالی: یدنین علیھن من جلابیبھن۔۔۔ قل للمؤمنین یغضوا من ابصارھم

The co-education system of colleges and universities is having a number of evils; therefore it is undoubtedly unlawful.


(2) Such deeni class which co-educates grownup boys and girls is unislamic and attending such class is not allowed.


(3) It is ordained to separate the bed of girls and boys when they reach ten years of their age. This implies that the boys and girls can learn together maximum to the age of ten years.
