How should he offer advice to a non-mahram woman?
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I had a female class-mate when I was studying in middle school, but praise be to Allaah I adhered to the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) which say that one should not be alone with a non-mahram woman. My question is: I know that she has some good characteristics, and I want to offer her advice and guide her, but the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade being alone with a non-mahram woman, and Allaah forbids looking at a non-mahram woman. So how can I call her (da’wah)?.

Praise be to Allaah.
As you mention, it is haraam to be alone with a non-mahram woman and it is haraam to look at her. If you want to offer her advice, then you can speak to her when she is concealing herself from you, and without being alone with her. You could also give her some useful books and tapes that will help her to learn the rulings of her religion, or write the advice to her, or use other useful means that will not lead to fitnah and will achieve the desired goal.
And Allaah is the Source of strength.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
