Question

Assalamu Alaikum,Is it permissible to sit in places in which there is sin or people are listening to music or backbiting? If there is a need. Like one is on a public transport or one is attending in a intivation etc. People are backbiting.So if one needs to cool down and goes to shopping complex in which there is AC and there is TV. People are watching tv. Is it permissble to sit amongst them and cool one self down. I mean the need is to cool down. And thete is no other place to sit.Jazakum Allahu khairan

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

Dear brother, you have asked us so many questions about the subject of sitting and going to places where there is music; this (i.e. asking so many questions) is dispraised and blameworthy, and it indicates that you are affected with whispers on this subject.

We do not have time to get carried away with the questions of people who are affected with whispers, so we apologize for not answering your questions [especially that you have asked us similar questions previously].

Allah knows best.
