Weddings functions with small purda sections

Q: These days a new trend is to have wedding functions where all haram takes place and then have small pardha sections for men and women who are pardha conscious. Would it be permissible to attend such a function and use the pardha section?


A: This is scant disregard for the shari`ah. If people don’t have respect for the shari`ah then what is the point in going to such types of functions.

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