Socializing with people who swear

Question: Is it sinful to socialize with people who swear?


Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

Dear questioner,

Thank you for your important question.

No, it is not sinful to socialize with people who swear because we are not responsible for other people’s actions. However, we do have to tell them not to swear, even if they are not Muslims, and express some kind of dislike towards it.
