Islam and the Quran

Can I stay with other women in the same room?

Question: I’m a psychological counselor. Is it permitted for me to give counseling to a woman? (Psychological counseling is given through one-on-one interviews with patients)

Normally, it is not permitted to stay with a stranger of opposite-sex indoors without anyone else.

However, it can be acceptable if there’s someone else in your office at the same time and if the door of the therapy room is unlocked. It is more appropriate if the door is left ajar.
