Salam alaikum I want to double check what the ruling on interaction for men and women of Muslim faith is and then with nonMuslims. A Prime Minister asked to hug a Muslim tv personality who agreed to it. His wife is a hijab wearing sister. Together they are role models in the community. Someone told me it\\\’s ok for a Muslim male to hug a non Muslim. Obviously it\\\’s not ok to hug a non mahram muslim woman. Is this true? Is it permissable for Muslim men to hug non Muslim women?
