    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 245/N=241/N) It is allowed to use the internet forum if it is according to Shariah. If there is online discussion (by writing) then there is no problem, even if there is a woman at another end. But, if there are pictures or voice of women, then it will not be allowed even if it has only Islamic contents. So, it is allowed to use internet in itself provided that there is no picture of living being and voice of women.
