    How Haram is it? I have male friends whom I hug, however I do not date/kiss them. It is normal for me to hug them, I don't feel anything 'sexual.' To me it is like hugging my girl friends, as I consider all my male friends simply friends and they are too close to me for me to like them in a crush way.

    uhuh...So, theoretically, I could go around doing bad things and it would be okay because I could just make wudu at the end of the day?

    I guess it depends how religious you are. There's always the living a double life option.

    Generally physical contact isn't allowed between opposite sexes according to Islam but in the West where things like shaking hands and hugging is a norm, its difficult to implement. Its up to you to know your boundaries I personally dont have a problem with hugging or shaking hands with the opposite gender but if it can be avoided then I'd avoid it but its whatever... Im not uptight about the little things

    Given the absence of females in public in many Islamic countries, men in fact tend to be very physically affectionate. In a village in Pakistan, boys would rush up to hold my hand as we walked. I've seen them hug, even kiss. So I wouldn't worry about it. You don't touch Muslim women.

    In my opinion God's not gonna throw you in the Hellfire to burn for all eternity for a harmless hug, although He'd appreciate it if you avoided it just for Him.

    Just because you've left Islam doesn't mean you don't know anything about it anymore. For example if I left Islam and someone asked if pork is haraam to a Muslim, am I not allowed to tell them it's haraam?

    It is haram to touch the opposite sex who is non mehram in any way whether that be holding or shaking hands or a hug.

    However I do it anyway (shake hands, the friendly hug) because its inevitable in things like job interviews. It would be rude if I didnt shake their hand.

    Whenever it is avoidable though, you should try to.

    Allah knows your intentions and He knows best.
