2 Question: I am studying in a new university where girls and boys sit together in the same class. What is the Islamic law about co-education?
Answer: As for mixing up with the opposite gender, the woman must observe complete Islamic modest dress code and if she needs to talk to a man, she must avoid changing her voice to make it more delicate and attractive and she should also avoid talking in a way which is inappropriate.
