The Ruling On Young Men And Women Talking To Each Other – Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen And Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan:
Shaykh Ibn Uthaimeen [رحمه الله ] was asked:
What is the ruling on muraasalah [correspondence] between young men and women knowing that this correspondence is free from immorality, ‘ishq [passionate love], and I always begin the letters with
وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا

A VERY CUTE STORY
An arts teacher said once: One day, I asked my little students in primary class to draw the imagery of Spring(season). All of them drew flowers, trees, rivers, birds etc…except one student who drew a Mus’haf (Qur’an). I asked her why she drew a Mushaf (Qur’an). Her innocent answer brought tears to my eyes…. She said: ”Qur’an is the SPRING of my heart. That’s what my mom taught me.
Don’t we say that in our Du’a: ”I pray to ALLAH to make the Qur’an the Spring of my heart, the light of my chest, the remover of my sadness and the reliever of my distress?!”

We should instill the amazing love of Qur’an in the hearts of our children…

Dear sisters: when looking for ways to empower yourselves please stop referring to Umm Al-Mumineen as just a business woman.
If you want to run a business go for it. Islam empowers you as a woman to work, to earn, to own a business, and to keep the income.
But pretty please stop reducing Khadijah and her name down to business woman.

She was THE first person to comfort when he was overwhelmed and shaking from the awesomeness of experiencing an Angel, of being squeezed by him, and of hearing the first verses of The Quran being recited to him.
She was THE first person who brought him to her religious…
