They asked me to go to the church with them , but I refused until I ask about the ruling on this first. Is it permissible to go with them to the church to show that Islam is a tolerant,
sociable religion, and so that there can be a chance to call them to Islam? Given that they are Protestant Christians. As they claim, there is neither Sujud (prostration) nor Ruku' (bowing) in their Salah (Prayer). It is impossible for me to embrace Christianity, by the permission of Allah.
It is impermissible to go with them to the church just to show tolerance. However, if it is a means to call them to (Part No. 2; Page No. 116) Islam, and you do not share their rituals or are affected by their 'Aqidah (creed), customs, and traditions, it is permissible.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
