Just a quick question... I dont know if its in the right section.

Anyway I want to know whether it would be appropriate to go and see my new elderly neighbour, hes male and non-muslim. I thought it would be nice if i took some food over and fulfilled my duties as a neighbour and start my dawa mission. :)

Would it be appropriate if i go with my younger brother, who may not be mature enough to act as a mehram?

JazakAllah Khair in advance.

walykum salaam sis,

masha Allah that's good islamic manners you're showing by doing that, but if the guys alone, like not married or nothin' take someone bigger than your lil bro... (how old is ur bro?) perhaps try not to make the visit too long.
ALso if you have an older brother let him give your neighbour da'wah insha Allah sis

take care

wassalaam

Thats a lovely gesture. You should go! Taking your little bro is a nice idea. Mashallah. Go for it!!

JazakAllah Khair for your replies.

My brothers 16 years old... And thats my only mehram at the moment, so its either him or i dont go. He cant help me with the dawa but his presence might make it legit.

And my neighbour looks around 50+, he lives on his own.

So what do u guys think ?

Sis 16 years old is more than old enough to act as your mahram! :D

But 50+ is not old. :hiding: maybe 65+ is old-ish?:?
