Ask The Imam Question and Answer

680 I have often heard from young people/students that they see clubbing as a normal social activity.

It is commonly said that clubbing for these individuals means not to free mix/engage with the opposite sex, to not indulge in alcohol and drugs, but to merely go out with a group of friends to have fun and a good time. What are your views on such statements or to others excuses?
Partying and clubbing is totally outlawed in Islam. There is no legal or religious justification for such practices. In short, it is the perfect environment to lead one away from the remembrance of Allah (S.W.T).

Clubbing and partying usually entails (i) loud music (ii) the use of drugs (iii) alcohol (iv) the free mixing of the sexes (v) excessive waste of time.

All these acts are severely prohibited individually, so clearly attending an event where all elements are to be found collectively will be vehemently forbidden.
