Saalam Alaikum !!

Alhamdulliah, with the Grace of Almight Allah, I have been given the
knowledge of knowing the right from wrong, which is why I know that
talking to Na-Mehram women is forbidden in Islam. But, My question is
that, are we allowed to talk to Na-Mehram women/girls, if we were
intending to get married, and are there any criterias to follow, if we
did talk? Please reply soon. I am in the Taqleed of Agha-seestani


Fee amanillah

(B) By considering the hijab in Islam, is a boy permitted to
     look at the girl before marrying her? 

     A man is allowed to see without hijab the woman whom he
     intends to marry. However, this permission is just for the man or
     the woman to see the prospective spouse once; (Muhaqqiq

     2, p. 67; al-Yazdi, al-'Urwah, p. 625; al-Khu'i, Minhaj, vol. 2,

     is not a perpetual license to go out together! I strongly
     recommend that such a meeting should take place with the
     supervision of the parent or the guardian.
