hello everybody,

this is my first blog.

My boss invited me and everybdoy for a night out.We will be first dining at restaurant where they will be serving alcoholic drinks.

My question is should i go to such a restaurant and sit down in a table where 97 percent of the people will be drinking alcohol?

I am not an expert on this issue, but I feel that you may be subjecting yourself to temptation. If you feel that it is that important for you to go and your coworkers are aware of your beliefs than they should respect them. If they try to lead you astray, stand firm, and then leave. Also remember that the company you keep represents you, so when they become intoxicated and act ignorant you will be viewed as being ignorant by the other patrons in the restaurant. Allah will direct you in the right path. Pay attention to the signs along the way.

a muslim must stay away from haram.If you sit with them it will damage your eemaan.
[4.144] O you who believe! do not take the unbelievers for friends rather than the believers; do you desire that you should give to Allah a manifest proof against yourselves?

I am not saying that you are taking them as friends but you must use your intelligence to avoid any unislamic situation even if it is work related.
the Question is what is more important Allah or .....?
