House warming ceremony

Question ID: 21786

Aslaamualaikum Mufti sahib, Kaisay hain aap?

If A Muslim has a sikh friend. The sikh bought a new house and set a house warming ceremony and invited the Muslim to come over. The Muslim attends. At the house warming ceremony in the Sikhs house their was meat and drink (don’t know if this is religious) and also a religious was function happening and everyone were offering prayers and bowing down (sajdah) to their sikh shrine/statue.

The Muslim does not want to do anything like bowing down to the sikh shrine and thinks to himself, ‘what am I going to do if I’m asked to do the bowing down and offering prayers and taking part in the religious function.’
The Muslim then thinks to himself that he will go to the room of the sikh shrine if asked but will not bow down to it.

Anyhow the Muslim is NOT asked and also the Muslim gives a card and chocolates to his sikh friend for the new house. At the house warming ceremony the Muslim also ate food such as samaosas, sweets etc.

Does the Muslim lose his imaan/Faith by attending this house warming ceremony or thinking as explained above or any of the above?

The Muslim has no intention to believe in the sikh religion.
