    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.
    Please give a meaning to the word "Mehram" محرم, as most of the people don't speak Arabic here. You could say that it is forbidden to have a physical greeting gestures with someone who is not your wife, husband, brother or relative in blood.
    I am sorry but many people might be misguided by the word Mehram

    I work with a lot of Muslim men (German teacher working with mostly Syrian refugees) and am always surprised at how cuddly the guys are with each other, much more so than we usually see in western Europe. Clearly no-one's told them it's haram.

    Only opposite genders are not allowed because the curse of islam makes you incapable of not having sexual urges when interacting with the opposite gender apparently, absolute nonesense.

    It was narrated that Ma’qil ibn Yassaar said: the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “For one of you to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle is better for him than that he should touch a woman who is not permissible for him.”

    Narrated by al-Tabaraani in al-Kabeer, 486.

    If you're fine with hugging males then go for it. If anyone thinks it's sexual and will lead to you fornicating then that's their problem.

    Ahh. That hadith gives me good memories. Girls used to say hello to me and I would blank them.

    Yesterday I came out of the gym and it was snowing heavily. Next to me was a girl. I had a massive umberalla and she was looking at it ! I was about to offer to share, until I saw a few muslims I knew. Not gonna lie I felt kinda bad for here.

    According to Islam, it is haram to hug the opposite gender as it can provoke desire. You may not have feelings for them but there is no guarantee it won't develop with time or the males won't develop feelings for you.

    Also, men are told to lower their gaze so this is going a bit too far, if they are Muslims. Insha'Allah, you will try to stay away from such acts, because we should know as Muslims that Allah SWT knows us better and so it's for our own benefit.

    So you agree that Islam is deeply misogynistic? Good.

    Well you haven't disagreed with it and Islam clearly goes against your own personal loose morals.

    Man, that's so sad that people are forbidden to give friendly hugs. I practically live off hugs.

    What even makes you think I'm Muslim? You're just sitting there assuming everything about me, quite embarrassing to be honest.
