Hugging a friend

Q: What is the ruling of hugging a friend in Islam? If I am a girl and hug my friend who is a girl too is it permissible? What about hugging your friend everyday at the time of meeting and departure?

Bismillaah

A: If there is no wrong feelings then it is permissible.

As above.

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