Question:
There are many churches here. Is it permissible to go into them to hold discussions with the priests there? Is it permissible to go in just to look at them and see what the people do there?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

It is permissible for scholars and knowledgeable people to enter churches in order to call the people there to Islam. But we should not enter them just to look around, because there is no benefit in doing so, and there is the fear that the Muslim may be influenced by them, especially if he is ignorant about his own religion and cannot refute the confusion that they will direct towards him.



From Fataawaa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 13/257

I have read totally different, I heard the prophet peace be upon him didnt go in places with pictures.

But then I read on a load-islam page that Umar may Allah be pleased with him didnt go into a church for another reason.

so am not sure.

Salaams,

thank-you all for your replies!

so according to the standing comittee if i were to look around as a part of an expedition from my work place, it's not allowed.due to fear that he/she might get influenced
I do understand that clearly, makes sense thank-you!

and IsaAbdullah ...

I heard the prophet peace be upon him didnt go in places with pictures
That's a very good point, but then we'd have to exclude a whole lota other places too, everywhere nowadays has pictures, look at the public transport for instance, we can't do without it!
