Assalamoalaikum Mufti Sahab! Kindly advise a)whether a Muslim is allowed to participate for the sake of friends in their religious events like Christmas, Deevali, etc. b)in your website, when you say ‘not permissible’ or ‘impermissible’, what does it means? does it means haraam? or its makrooh or its unadvisable? JazakAllahumul khairan kaseera.
It is Haram for a Muslim to attend any non-Muslims religious event, for example, Christmas, Deevali, etc.
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
Mufti Ebrahim Desai
