Question : #1120 Category: Major Sins
Subject: Attending a kaffir wedding
Question: Assamalaikum,

My name is Krishti and I am a young Muslim girl living in Sydney. One of my closest friends (a female of my age) was born into a Muslim family but neither she nor her family are practising Muslims (although they observe Islamic days such as Eid).

Recently she became engaged to a non-Muslim male and he will not convert to Islam. I realise it is haram for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim male.

My question is, if I attend her wedding, am I committing a sin? If I attend her wedding or other pre-wedding events, is that a way of me showing I am validating her sinful decision?

Am I allowed to attend her wedding and not participate in any haram activities such as dancing or drinking alcohol? Or is my mere attendance considered a sin?

Please provide me with some advice relating to this. If it is a sin, how would you recommend declining the invitation given we are long time friends?

I also wanted to know if Muslims are allowed to attend weddings of non believers if they refrain from haram activities (such as drinking)?

Your advice is appreciated.

Regards,
Krishti
