Can I go on an office trip during Muharram.


There is a company trip going for 3 days on the 15, 16 and 17 of Muharrum ,is it bad that I go?


Waalaykum al-Salam
Thank you for your question.

If it is an office-related trip for work purposes then there is no issue with it. However, if it is not, there is no problem with it perse, however, since in the months of Muharram and Safar, we are commemorating the martyrdom of the grandson of our beloved Holy Prophet, Imam Hussein (as), we should try and maintain the sanctity of the month and the tragedy of Kerbala. And avoid any such act that would show other than our remembrance and sorrow for the tragedy.

May Allah keep you safe,
