It is not permissible for a Muslim to
attend parties where there is Khamr or other Haram (prohibited) things. This is because the faith of believers should urge them to jealously protect the Laws of Allah and to avoid the company of those who regard as permissible that which Allah has forbidden. (Part No. 26; Page No. 80) They have to separate themselves from their company for the Sake of Allah, while having towards them a feeling of aversion as much as they have committed of transgressions against Allah, so as not to be a partaker with them in their sin.It is authentically reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
“Anyone of you who sees Munkar (that which is unacceptable or disapproved of by Islamic law and Muslims of sound intellect), let them change it with their hand (by taking action); if they cannot, then with their tongue (by speaking out); and if they cannot, then with their heart (by hating it and feeling that it is wrong); and that is the weakest of Iman (faith).”
It was narrated by
Jabir ibn ‘Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, at the end of the Hadith,
“Anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day should not sit at a table where Khamr is being served around.”
(Related by Imam
Al-Ahwadhy", vol. 10, p. 422.
Al-Tirmidhy said that it is a Hadith Hasan Gharib [a good Hadith that is strange to come from this chain of narration]
and related by
Imam Ahmad in his "Musnad", vol. 1, p. 20, and vol. 3, p. 339)
Another wording for the same Hadith is:
“...Should not sit at a table where Khamr is being drunk.”
This is a Hadith Sahih (a Hadith that has been transmitted by people known for their uprightness and exactitude; free from eccentricity and blemish), which has other corroborating reports that strengthen it.Accordingly, Muslims have to fear Allah in all they say and do. Allah (Exalted be He) says (what means):
And whosoever fears Allâh and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty).
And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine.
Anyone who leaves something for the Sake of Allah will be compensated with better than it. So, it is obligatory on you to keep away from these places where Khamr is served and give priority to pleasing Allah over pleasing human beings. You should have Tawakkul (putting one’s trust in Allah) and know that Allah Alone is the Benefit Giver and the Harm-Inflictor. (Part No. 26; Page No. 81) You should also advise your colleagues and remind them of Allah and the painful and severe punishment He has prepared for those who indulge in things that He made Haram. Hopefully, they will listen to you and make Tawbah (repentance to Allah) and return to the Way of Allah (Glorified be He).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
