Answer

If you are a female, you need to be careful.

First, you shouldn’t give your number to any strange male except out of dire necessity. If you are married, it is better you don’t keep male contact or give out your contact without your husband’s consent.

In this case, one needs to know why the brother has sent you this airtime. Is it to appreciate your courtesy and service, this gift should be with your boss’ consent.
Is it for other reasons. You need to know.
Then you may decide to accept or return it.

Moreso, you should be very careful in relating with him if he is going to begin work with you.
You should also not pick his calls if he calls unnecessarily. Everthing ends in the office.

If however, you are not married, he may be interested in you.
If you think he is ok as a partner, find out about his deen, person and origin, then let him go to your parents without delay, if you are pleased to be with him as a partner.

May Allah guide us and you to that which earns us His pleasure, and save us from all that lead to His wrath
