  • Going to the pub to eat

    Heyyy guys :)
    Just want some advice to help me decide on whether to go to the pub OR not?

    Basically everyone from my class are off to the pub for a xmas meal....I have been invited but am unsure on whether it would be haram.
    Obv I won't be drinking so would it be okay?

    And for those who say .... well they sell alcohol.... well super markets like Sainsbury sell alcohol and I always shop there. so???

    I don't think you should. I mean, number one, it's for a Christmas meal, and we don't celebrate Christmas as Muslims.

    Number two, haram things go on in pubs and could influence you to do something bad, so you shouldn't go there anyway.

    When you go to Sainsbury's, you don't go to socialise or to celebrate Christmas. You go there to shop for necessities.

      assalaamu alaykum,

      1. free mixing is haram.
      2. sitting with people drinking alcohol is haram and there is a specific narration to this effect.
      3. celebrating christmas is an act of kufr akbar at its worse, at its best immitation of the kuffar and still haram.

      so no you cannot go.

          I'd advise you to not go. Don't lower yourself to the standards of the kuffar

            It was narrated that ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever believes in Allaah and the Last Day, let him not sit at a table where wine is being drunk.”

            Narrated by Ahmad, 126; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Irwa’ al-Ghaleel, 7/6.

              Mixing with the opposite gender.

              The meal is taking place cz of the celebration of Xmas, same thing.
              Allah's Messenger :saw: said: "Allah the Exalted said: I live in the thought of My servant and I am with him as he remembers Me. When he draws near Me by the span of his hand, I draw near him by the length of a cubit, and when he draws near Me by the length of a cubit, I draw near him by the length of a fathom, and when he draws near Me walking I draw close to him running." (Al-Bukhari)

                You might not think you're celebrating it, but the people around you are and you're taking part in their celebration, thus celebrating with them.

                      Sister, I really thing you should break off with any "friends" who go to pub for whatever reason. They will not being any benefit to you whatsoever, instead they'll just influence you to do bad.

                      You're bettering yourself as a Muslimah and you need good, pious company, not people who go to pubs. I know it'll be hard to break off, but we should be willing to do everything for the sake of Allah

                      Just sincere advice.
                      Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

                      "A person who is blessed with the ability to be grateful, shall never be deprived of barakah and increase in blessings."
                      - Rasulullah (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم)‎

                        would the pub supply halal chicken nuggets/wings? halal beef steak? or halal meat items on the menu? thought someone would point this obvious one out.

                          Yes I only just realised that last week... that i'm having to break friends with certain ppl.



                          I don't know how to break friends though, I kicked my friend out of my flat the other week.... becuase I didn't like her attitude and she kept begging me to go shisha and didnt respect that I didnt wna go. she didnt take it well.



                          I know most of my friends aren't that holy moly ....BUT at least they are kind.... so i'm stuck? What do I do? Still be friends with them?



                          I have limits.... there are certian things that I dnt get involved in, but I guess I can still be friends with them right??

                          So long as I dont get involved in like going out on the weekends etc, Like we'll go shopping but then I miss out on other haram activites...

                          HELP!
