Pictures of animate objects

Q: I live in Pakistan. In Pakistan we can only find CD’s of games and movies which are pirated approximatly 1 dollar 100 Rs. I like to play games but buying the original game costs more money than my budget. They are eg. 50 dollars and more. Nowadays I download games from torrents. I want to ask that am I allowed to download or is there any other way?


A: Pictures of animate objects are haraam and forbidden in Islam. You should sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala for getting involved in these sins and make a firm resolve that you will not return to it in the future.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
