Long story short, I did boxing, left it because I found out it’s haram, took me some time but I decided I should pick Allah over my desires. Anyways my 2 brothers play Basketball so I gave it a shot and liked it way better, and started playing it way more and planned on going to a club, I finally got my membership at a local club, but I recently came across a video on my recommendation from Skeik Assim al-Hakeem about going to a mixed (male and female) Gym, he said it’s prohibited. I then asked my little brother that goes to the Basketball club weather they teach Males and Females together, he said yes. So before cancelling my membership I want to make sure if it’s allowed if I lower my gaze and don’t interact with the females, would appreciate an answer. Jazakallahu Khairan.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

It is not permissible to be in training with other females present.

And Allah knows best
