Why Sitting With the Opposite Sex Is Strictly Prohibited In The Mosque- Imam Reveals

The Chief Imam of Adiam Memorial Central Mosque Iporo Ake, Abeokuta, Imam Talihat Yunus has said that sitting with or among the opposite sex is strictly prohibited in the mosque.

Speaking on what some people called segregation of women in mosque, he said the major reason for this segregation in Islam is that whatever you are close to, can make you sin, adding that the only reason that a man and woman can sit together in Islam is only when the two parties are related by 
He said, "when men and women sit together, it results to different mishaps happening in our society like fornication, adultery, sexually transmitted diseases and even unwanted pregnancies."
"The Qur'an went as far as teaching us that in Islam, men and women should not handshake, hug or peck the opposite sex that they are not related with. The sitting arrangement in the mosque is a vivid example of what is expected of Muslims whereby where the menfolk will be seated will be different from where the female will be seating."

He added that these days, most mosques have a separate place where the female will have their ablution and it will be far from where the male will have theirs and they do not share the same toilet.
