A: It is haraam in Islam for a girl to be in contact with a na mahram. More so when he is a disbeliever, having contact with him is even more serious. You should immediately sever all ties with him and sincerely seek repentance from Allah Ta’ala for the sin you have committed.

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