If he was a good muslim i would have sensed it, But i had a bad feeling about him. Tooo confident and tooo chattey, and then offered his hand and then he tryed chatting up the sikh girl i know. Not really the makings of a good muslim or a good example of a pious brother.
Even if he hadnt offered his hand, i would have still found out from my mate he tryed it on with her, and i would of still thought he was a typical arab player.
Yeah it depends on the context. I think like if you are in uni with a sister same class and you work together, its nicer to talk to her, if she covers herself and isnt too forward it is better for you as a brother to talk to her, as she is not flaunting everything, you have no need to worry about fitnah. She is covered and she also covers herself inside, and is shy. SO you keep away from good things and surround yourself in fintah? how does that makes sense bro??
Like i said you in the same class its ideal to get to know one another, It is more acceptable that way, i mean you work togther so you get to see what sort of person they are, do they make alot of contributions to the class, team player, hard worker, etc etc. Perfect environment and its not forced, And if you dotn like one another then you are just class mates but if you like each other it is not soo weird and it wont freak her out if you were to ask her can i have your walis number. But to go upto a girl in the street when you dont even know her is a no no.
Unfortunatly the 2 brothers in my group are complete wastes of space. LOL.
