Going to nightclubs
22 Aug 2011 08:40 GMT
I would like to ask about the ruling on going to nightclubs for a spot of fun; just to dance and socialize, but not to drink alcohol or to take other drugs. Is this allowed for Mulsims?

Sheikh Salman al-Oadah

A Muslim may not go to these places. In fact, he is not allowed to have anything to do with them. He is not even allowed, as part of his work, to assist in building these places or to install any utilities in them. Allah says: “Help ye one another in righteousness and piety, but help ye not one another in sin and rancor.” [Sûrah al-Mâ’idah: 2]

Also, it is forbidden to mix with members of the opposite sex and to listen and dance to music. What lawful activities could a Muslim possibly engage in while attending such places?
