Attending Christian wedding in a church ?
Question: Can I go inside a church as a Muslim to attend a friend’s wedding, or is it haram? بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
You can show kindness to non-Muslims in multiple ways without having to attend their religious functions. During a Christian wedding, many unislamic activities occur in addition to the impermissibility of entering a church, as explained by jurists. Hence, it is impermissible to attend a Christian wedding.
