Segregation in Academic Discussions: Necessary or Taboo?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Could you please tell me is there a need for segregation between non mahram male and females in academic discussions and conferences? The content of discussions is halaal but sometimes there is a need for public meetings and private discussions which some brothers outside the academy feel is a sign of transgression. Is that so?


A: The place for women is the home. There is nothing better for a woman than the home.

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