Assalamu'alaikum everyone,

I am from Indonesia. I hope you guys can help to explain to me my confusion here.

Lately, i've become a fan from one of kpop idol group, I did so many things that every other fan did too, like listened to all their music, bought their album, saved their picture on social media, watched their previous video, watched their concert, and even i've memorized all of their profile and habits.

And yesterday, my father sent me this hadits :

Ibn Umar reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, โ€œWhoever imitates a people is one of them.โ€

Source: Sunan Abu Dawud 4031

Grade: Hasan (fair) according to Ibn Hajar

ุนูŽู†ู’ ุงุจู’ู†ู ุนูู…ูŽุฑูŽ ู‚ูŽุงู„ูŽ ู‚ูŽุงู„ูŽ ุฑูŽุณููˆู„ู ุงู„ู„ูŽู‘ู‡ู ุตูŽู„ูŽู‘ู‰ ุงู„ู„ูŽู‘ู‡ู ุนูŽู„ูŽูŠู’ู‡ู ูˆูŽุณูŽู„ูŽู‘ู…ูŽ ู…ูŽู†ู’ ุชูŽุดูŽุจูŽู‘ู‡ูŽ ุจูู‚ูŽูˆู’ู…ู ููŽู‡ููˆูŽ ู…ูู†ู’ู‡ูู…ู’

My father sent that with the mention 'you must read this hadits, it's haram for you to be a fan of non-muslims celebrity, if you included to be one of them, it's means you can't get the jannah, and what makes me so sad is you said you want us to be together again in jannah'.

My heart feels so broken after read that text. I cried a lot. Is it true that islam not allow us to be a fan of non-muslims celebrity because it means we are the one of them in the hereafter?

Thanks in advance,

Salaams Rida, and welcome. Please don't feel bad and discuss with your father your feelings and seek further clarification concerning his advice to you. I believe you will certainly find he didn't mean your faith is nullified by association with celebrity.

A man asked the Prophet (๏ทบ) about the Hour (i.e. Day of Judgment) saying, "When will the Hour be?" The Prophet (๏ทบ) said, "What have you prepared for it?" The man said, "Nothing, except that I love Allah and His Apostle." The Prophet (๏ทบ) said, "You will be with those whom you love."

Thank you for your advise. And thank you for the reply. It'll really help me.

I'll try to discuss this topic with my father as soon as possible. And I will try to fade my obsession for kpop step by step for my sake.

Thank you @abuayisha. Barakallah.
