Welcome to the program, Islam insight, a very special series essentially dedicated for a new Muslim brothers and sisters, how do we commit ourselves to gain knowledge regarding Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him like to know is he Junko compulsory for him, somebody told me that a Muslim is not allowed to have relationship with a non Muslim knowledge revives the spirit of Islam.
Salam Alaikum, salaam, brother, as you know, we have our members of our family which they are not Muslim. So, when it comes to the celebrations and non Muslim celebrations, where are we allowed to participate? Right, as far as the participation of the non Muslims celebrations are concerned in which, you know, you are sure that there is going to be certain acts, which goes in the area of schilke, which goes in the area of disbelief, which goes in the area which contradicts the Sharia, the Islamic law, the Islamic principles, you are not allowed to go and celebrate and participate in those acts of celebrations. However, you need to also realize that participating in those kind of
celebrations is a kind of your silent approval is a kind of your acknowledgement that you are giving to them, that it is okay for you
to to enjoy, and to celebrate these things. And it is okay for me to participate and be in cooperation with you. It is not acceptable in the house of Islam. However, this should not be misunderstood in a way that you don't respect them. You don't love them, you don't care, and you're not being kind to them, this should not reflect this kind of feeling. So other than these specific times where these kinds of Acts, which are against Islam happening, you should not participate, and you should not cooperate in these matters. But other than these acts, other than these days, you should go visit them, care for them, love them, be with them, in the ways that Islam allows you to
be with them.
Be with them, with the limitation with a barrier with the consciousness that Islam allows you with certain principles to be with your non Muslim families, and never ever associate yourself in committing any kind of act, which goes against the principles of Islam, essentially, because Allah subhanaw taala he says in the Quran, in Surah Surah number five, and number two, the r1 or albery. What taqwa one, tau one is me when you're the one who operate in the matters of good, but to not cooperate in the matters, which are evil. So your participation, it could reflect as a kind of a silent approval, as a kind of your acknowledgement that for example, if they celebrate any kind of
action, which their religion allows, and it's a form of disbelief, then you should not do that you should not participate. However, as I mentioned, mark these words don't reflect this as a kind of disrespect and this
humanely and a kind of a humiliation to them.
Pay the visits after that. So that they may understand that you are living a life of a Muslim, which means that you cannot associate in certain parts of aspects or activities which invites you to be away from it, which this allows you to participate in those acts, but you are allowed to be kind to be soft to be carrying with them. Hope that answers your question.
