Answered by Imam Yama Niazi
I wish to learn how to swim and start scuba diving. Is it okay if I go scuba diving? I have found this scuba diving and travel center; they teach you and take you on scuba diving trips on their yacht.
Assalam alaykum wa rahmatullah
May Allah bless you and increase you in good.
As long as you can ensure that you do the following.
1.) Make sure you are covering your nakedness [awra]. This is the area below the navel till the bottom of the knee (for men).
2.) Making sure that you can pray on time and not miss your prayers.
3.) Making sure that there is not a situation where others are with you dressed inappropriately. (example, women in swimming attire exposing nakedness)
4.) Making sure you are not in a situation where they are drinking alcohol on their yacht, and you may have to sit there or keep their company in that sin.
Allah knows best
