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.


Our Sheikh will respond to this question in the coming days Insha'Allah, check again soon
