Q: I am a student and I have friends in school both boys and girls. But on some occasions, can I give a gift to my friends (both female and male friends).
A: Don’t ever think of giving gifts to girls. It is not permissible for you to have a friendly association with girls.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
