End of the year company parties

Question:

At the end of the year, the company I work for will be having a party for all the staff. Is it permissible for me to attend considering that there will be music and the staffs are male and female?

Answer:

It is not permissible for you to attend this party that the company will be hosting. It is obvious and known to one and all what happens at these parties. There will either be music, dancing, immodest dressing or unlawful drinks served. There will also be free intermingling of sexes. You should excuse yourself politely from this in whichever manner possible. It really would not be nice if a Muslim has to die in an environment like this. 

 

And Allah Knows Best
