As I browse some of my social media accounts, I can't help but notice the hot topic that keeps circulating around which has caught a lot of (unnecessary) attention...and that is "Adam Saleh" "3MH" and any other group this young man is in. In order to write about this, I had to familiarize myself with this individual. I watched a few of his youtube videos to try to better understand what all this Adam "hype" is all about. What really stuck out to me the most was the amazing amount of female Muslim followers whom all seem to be in their early to late teens. I noticed that a lot of these young Muslimahs were very excited and shamelessly professing their admiration for Adam and his friends. Now, I am not here to lecture anyone about what is halal and haram because that is not the purpose of this post because we already know that it is impermissible in Islam to touch/talk/flirt with a non-mahram (male or woman not permissible for us unless marriage occurs) whether it is shaking hands, hugging, kissing on the cheek and/or any other type of physical and verbal contact.
It was narrated that Ma’qil ibn Yassaar said: the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “For one of you to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle is better for him than that he should touch a woman who is not permissible for him.”
(Narrated by al-Tabaraani in , 486. Shaykh al-Albaani said in , 5045, that this hadeeth is saheeh. )
