I would like to know if it’s permissible for a Muslim person to go a Christian prayer meeting for the death. Eg, if my Christian mother in law should pass on and they have a prayer meeting for her, is it permissible for me to attend that gathering because of it being my wife’s mother.
No. you cannot attend the prayer meeting. You may go and offer your condolences at a time when no prayers are taking place.
And Allah knows best
