Aoa i want to ask that an unknown sister created a WhatsApp group to manage digital congregation tahajjud in order to elevate anxiety and do dua but she posted it on Facebook and have asked people to join in the whats app is it allowed in Islam in this way as their would be non mehrams as well in the group including me please assist .
Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.
It is not desirable for a sister to have a WhatsApp group where she would be exposing herself to interacting with men who may or may not be harboring the best of intentions.
According to the rules of jurisprudence, we ought to close the doors leading to Haram as that might inadvertently lead to Haram is also deemed as Haram.
Allah Almighty knows best.
