If its only with men there may be a problem, especially if she is making eye contact with young Muslim men who may well take eye contact as an invitation to more than she intends. Just being friendly is OK if its with a range of people in a cultural setting who understand her intent.

If she makes eye contact with all sorts of people she may just make their day. Smiling and acknowledgeing someone who is very lonely can lift their spirits and it is lovely watching their faces turn from ugly and miserable to one of beauty.
There is a difference between looking at someone while you talk and flirting.
