Comment:i can't believe this. i am a 16 year old muslim boy and my prom is TODAY. I hAve been awake all night; praying and playing xbox and i was just searching random prom pages. i still havent made my mind up to go but i have a choice since my parents paid me for in advance. ive been feeling guilty about the ramifications of me going that could affect my religion and all of a sudden i come across this page. subhaanAllah. what a wierd coincidense. but i still feel like going because i want to see all my friends for the last time. they are all going to different colleges and some are even moving. Does this make me a bad person, a kafir because eventhough i know im not meant to go and iv been prompted not to go i still want to???

This was a great article. The importance of finding happiness on our own through Islam and the importance of thankfulness were presented really well.
However, I'd like to say that I'm a muslim male and I went to prom with all my friends and really enjoyed it, and that going to prom for one day from the 19 years i've been alive as a musilm did not weaken my beliefs of islam or take away all my good doings from the past. No, i DID not have a date,(we all went as a big group), No, i did not go to any party afterwards(we all gathered at a friends house afterwards where parents were present), and No, there was never even an ounce of alcohol aronund me the whole night. Prom was simply one night of my life that I spent with my graduating class and my close friends and I'll cherish the memory of it forever.
I think going to prom or not should be left upto anyone on a personal level. Of course, I wouldn't encourage it, because it is just one more luxury in life that we as muslims are to try to abstain from, But, if you're going to talk about wasting precious time in your life by going to prom for 3-4 hours, then I'd suggest that you also talk about giving up television, movies, music, and all of that other "good" stuff.
What I'm trying to say is, the subject of prom is not needed in this article that conveys the message of "being happy and thankful" , and rather, actually takes away from the actual message of the article. Instead of using prom, talk about various things as a whole or a materialistic lifestyle for the contrast needed to convey the message of finding happiness and being thankful.
Nevertheless, its a nice article and I enjoyed reading it.

Comment:one can still go to prom and be thankful and behave decently (not because of limitations and expections from teachers, parents, etc. to behave decently, but rather because they believe in behaving this way), i don't believe we should spend a large amount of money on prom when this money could go elsewhere, and i don't believe in some of the things that students engage in during, before, and after prom, but prom itself will not make an immoral person, sure, the time spent at prom could be used doing something more useful, but prom is not as evil as some of us would like to think
