Assalaamu'alaikum ,I need a very urgent response please.a marriage proposal has come for a girl , both families are interested but the boy's family wants the girl to have a video call with the boy in the presence of her parents so that he can see her before finalizing the proposal as they live in different countries and can't physically visit each other's place.will it be permissible for the girl to comply with this request and talk to the boy on video call with her parents by her side?please reply as soon as possible as boy's family is waiting for our response.


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

There is nothing wrong with the suitor seeing the fiancée through the video, and it is permissible for him to see her directly.

Seeing the fiancée should be limited to what the suitor is permitted to see, which are: the face and the hands according to the most preponderant opinion of the jurists.

Allah knows best.
