Men beating drums at circumcision and wedding celebrations

A: It is impermissible for men to beat the drums on occasions, whether circumcision or others, as this entails prohibited amusement. Rather, it is proven in the Sunnah that women are recommended to beat the duff to announce the marriage. (Part No. 19; Page No. 132) This is granted to women only when there are no men present. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions.
