21643: Attending Graduation Ceremonies


Is participating in graduation ceremonies haraam?

Published Date: 2001-05-17

Praise be to Allaah.

If the graduation ceremony included disobedience, it becomes haram to attend or witness.  Some of the common disobedience that takes place in these ceremonies:  Music and the marching of the graduates to it;  Uncovered women and mixing with men;  the graduation dress which is in imitation of disbelievers (such as church dress).  And Allaah knows best.

Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid
