Going to markets where music is played

Q 8: We go to the marketplace outside the Kingdom to buy gifts for the family. However, the place is full of western music and women who are not properly dressed; is it permissible for us to go to such marketplaces or not?

A: It is not permissible for a Muslim to exist in places that are full of evils and Fitnah (temptation) unless he can resist the evil there. Furthermore, buying gifts is not a necessary matter when it exposes a Muslim to temptation. May Allah grant us and you well-being. (Part No. 26; Page No. 240) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
