In islam can muslim men and women be friends if their intentions are pure,just friends not boyfriend or girlfriend? “I do not exculpate myself. Lo! the (human) soul enjoineth unto evil, save that whereon my Lord hath mercy. Lo! My Lord is Forgiving, Merciful.” (Surah al Yusuf, 53)
Is falling in love a sin in Islam? If it is, why has Allah given this emotion to us and forbidden it?
