Talking to a girl on social media

Q: Is talking to girl on social media a form of zina?

A: The hadith explains that the zina of the mouth is to carry out haraam with the mouth. Hence, speaking to a ghair mahram girl and having contact with her on social media enters under the preview of this hadith.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
