Dear scholars, As-salamu `alaykum. Is it permissible for a Muslim to enjoy summer at the beach? And what are the conditions for enjoying the beach in summer? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Some brothers suggested having Islamic beaches for brothers and others for sisters and others for Muslim families so as to protect the practicing Muslims from watching unveiled women and other scenes that may be offensive to their deen (religion) and haya (modesty). Other brothers said that this will segregate practicing Muslims and they will not be able to practice da`wah to others. The first group said that this is meant for the protection of our deen and haya and it is no use talking to the other people (that is, non-practicing Muslims) because the beach is not a place for da`wah. What do you think about this issue?
