Being in contact with a na mahram woman

Q: Is it permissible for a married molvi to touch another woman who he is in love with but will not marry because for him its not a big deal to touch a woman in this manner. That girl loves him too but she is not agreeing to one thing, which is that she doesn’t want him to sleep with his first wife after she gets married to him. Other than that she agrees to all but now the man changed his decision and left her. She is heart broken.


A: It is impermissible to speak or have any contact with a na mahram woman.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
