Why Men and Women Can’t be friends (Video)

info-pictogram1 Some people think that men and women can keep it halah and just be friends, we know that that this statement is false because
The last and final Messenger sent to mankind Prophet Muhammad warned us against being alone with a non-mahram woman, and said: “No man is alone with a woman but the shaytaan is the third one present.” [Narrated by Ahmad, al-Tirmidhi and al-Haakim]

Even if they are not alone the friendship would never be like the friendship a women has with a women or a man has with a man as you will see clearly in this video. So sisters don’t ever fool yourselves thinking other wise.

What Awaits Women in Paradise?


Women always pose many questions about their status and conditions in Paradise and about what is waiting for them there. So, I thought it would be useful if I compile all the relevant issues concerning this subject along with their authentic proofs from the Quran and Sunnah in addition to the opinions of reliable scholars to clarify the subject.

It is permissible for women to ask about their reward in Paradise, as the human soul is fond of thinking about its destiny and future. The Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), accepted such questions from his Companions. For example, they asked himabout the buildings of Paradise and he,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), said:“It is built from bricks of gold and bricks of silver placed alternately…”
They also asked him if they wouldhave intercourse with their women in Paradise andthe Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), told them that this would happen.
Hearing about Paradise and its pleasures delights one’s heart and soul and there is no difference between men and women in this regard. In principle, this behavior is good as long as it is followed by righteous deeds. Allaah The Almighty Says to the believers (what means): {And that is Paradise which you are made to inherit for what you used to do.}[Quran 43:72]
So, they were truly longing for Paradise, and they worked to fulfill this wish.
Paradise and its pleasures are not for men alone; rather, it is {prepared for the righteous.} [Quran 3:133] The righteous here include men and women, as Allaah The Almighty Says (what means): {And whoever does righteous deeds, whether male or female, while being a believer — those will enter Paradise and will not be wronged}[Quran 4:124]
Women should not preoccupy themselves with inquiring about the details of their entering Paradise, what they will be doing there, where they will go, and so on. It is enough for every Muslim woman to know that once she enters Paradise, she will forget all the misery and hardships she ever faced, because her life in Paradise will be one of endless happiness.
It is enough for the Muslim woman to know that Allaah The Almighty Says (what means):
·         {No fatigue will touch them therein, nor from it will they [ever] be removed.}[Quran15:48]
·         {Circulated among them will be plates and vessels of gold. And therein is whatever the souls desire and [what] delights the eyes, and you will abide therein eternally.}[Quran 43: 71]
·         {Allaah being pleased with them, and they with Him.}[Quran 5:119]
All the pleasures of Paradise that Allaah The Almighty mentions in the Quran; such as kinds of food, beautiful scenes, houses, and clothes, will be equally for men and women. The only thing that is for men alone in Paradise is the Hoor (Maiden). Some women may inquire why women are not promised the same.
