Please explain the difference between pictures on a TV and on a computer. Can I also use physical training videos to do fitness training and martial arts as I do not have the time to go to clubs?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Yet you mentioned in a different fatwa that television and photos are the same. Please explain the difference between images on a TV and on a computer. Can I also use physical training videos to do fitness training and martial arts as I do not have the time to go to clubs? If I go to clubs, it conflicts with namaz time and I would like to stay fit by training at home. These videos provide instruction as well as motivation. I try not to watch TV for entertainment purposes.

Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatuhu

There are many other factors besides pictures and photos for television
being Haraam.

We reiterate that the images that appear in tvs and videos and computers are
not Tasweer (pictures) which is prohibited in Shari’ah. It is permissible to
follow educational instructions from computers and videos on condition there
is nothing un-Islamic in it.

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
