Muslims should be distinguished by their morals and values. The Muslim’s way of dress, talk, and behavior should be based on morality and decency. In their celebrations, Muslims should maintain their dignity, ethics and good manners.

Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states: “Muslims are not allowed to participate in proms as they are generally practiced in North America, for such gatherings invariably involve unlawful mingling and mixing of boys and girls. In Islam, such indiscriminate mingling and mixing of boys and girls is definitely considered haram (forbidden).

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “The eye commits fornication, the ears commit fornication, the hands commit fornication, the feet commit fornication, and finally the private parts consummate it or reject it.” So stay away from such gatherings in order to protect the integrity of your religion and honor.
