Is it permissible to attend family gatherings in which bid’ah takes place?

Question: 10225

When my family has any kind of occasion such as a wedding, circumcision or funeral, in the weddings and circumcision celebrations they use a drum and make ululations of joy, and on the occasion of a death they wail in an outrageous fashion. Should I go
to these gatherings or not, when they do these bid’ahs (innovations)?

Praise be to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah and his family.

It is not permissible for you to go to a gathering in which these evil actions take place, unless you are able to change this bid’ah and advise them and teach them in a goodly manner, so go to enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil.
