If a person adorns his voice and sings songs according to the natural method with an enchanting way provided the purpose is not amusement and pastime but with a correct motive, such as warding off of wildness, curtailing of distance etc. and, also the contexts of the song too is free from Shirk, Bid'ath and impermissible things such as eulogizing the beauty of living women and so on, and, does not make this occupation as a practice so as not to be unmindful or have shortcomings in the purpose of life, and, it does not have any musical instruments etc., then songs of this caliber are Mubah and permissible. Except for this, all other types are impermissible and Haram and it is essential to refrain from them.
As for creating immodest connections and having such dialogs as referred with Non-Mehram are concerned, they too are not correct according to the Shari'a and it is necessary to abstain from them as well.
