    Hi guys,

    Recently I got asked from a friend who is Muslim if I wanted to meet her in a public place just to catch up. She is female and I am male, but throughout school years I have got to know her as a friend. She is solely a friend and someone to chat with, that is all. However, I don't know if her culture/religion would allows this and I think her parents are quite strict. I get the feeling she lies to her parents when meeting up in public and quite frankly, I don't want to get her in trouble or intervene and come between any matters.

    So I am unaware of what I can do in this situation. Should I just meet up anyway or not? If I say no, I think she may get upset and if I say I am busy, there is the possibility that she will try to attempt to arrange a later date.

    I know this is a TSR forum and a very vague statement, but if there are any good answers or suggestions on what to do then please say.

    ffs :rofl:

    If she's above 18 she should be able to handle her own affairs.

    Just meet up its not that deep

    Both her religion and culture dont allow this. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid

    I'm a muslim female and if she is just a friend then go ahead. Fam its not that deep. There is no death sentence

    maybe she wants to convert you to get her reward in jannah

    Just meet her. Even if she's lying to her parents and gets caught (which she probably wont), i'm sure she can handle herself.
