The Lawful and Unlawful – Interactions between the Sexes Exceptions!

Abu Usayd al-Sa’adi invited the Prophet and his Companions to his wedding. The food was prepared and served by none other than his wife, Umm Usayd. She had soaked some dates in milk in a stone pot overnight. When the Prophet had finished his meal, she mashed the dates and brought the drink to him.”

Lecture details how even though Islam closes the door to what can lead to unlawful relations between women and men it is still a practical way of life. Being so there are exceptions to the interactions as long as certain conditions exist. For example a woman can serve her husbands guests as long as he is present and she is dressed properly. A woman can sit at a table with men as long as she is dressed properly and more.

Islam teaches that we must learn to strike the balance between worship and work. Allah wants us to enjoy the good things in life here but in turn to not allow seeking those things to cause you to not fulfil your obligations to him.
