CAN A MUSLIM ATTEND A WEDDING IN A CHURCH?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

QUESTION:

As Slaamu Alaikum,

A very good friend of mine who is now a revert needed some guidance. Her brother is getting married and the ceremony is in a church. Will she be allowed to attend or is this strictly haraam? Jazak Allah Khair.

ANSWER:

Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

Many Un Islamic practices take place at weddings held in a church. Along with this, ‘words of prayer’ and songs incorporate statements of shirk which one will witness and be a part of, when he/she goes to the church for the ceremony. On account of these, it will not be permissible to attend the ceremony which will be held in the church.

And Allah Knows best
