Is participating in graduation ceremonies haraam?


Praise be to Allah.

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.
