Free mixing is Haraam

‎بســـم اللــه الرحــمــن الـرحـــيــم

◾Free mixing is Haraam◾

Our Shaykh, Muhammad ibn Hizaam – may Allaah preserve him – was asked the following question:

? Question:

What is the ruling on studying in free mixed institutes, whether at primary, nursery, secondary or university level?

? Answer:

It is not permissible to mix girls with boys, even at a young age, because it may be that some of them have mature earlier than others such that they begin to feel affection towards the opposite sex. Thus free mixing is impermissible at every level; at primary, nursery, aswell as university – all of it is impermissible, and we have clarified in a previous sitting the many evidences on the prohibition of men free-mixing with women.
