Is it permissible to watch programs on TV relating to nature with the intention of contemplating and marvelling at the creation of Allah. This includes pictures of animals etc.
1. It is impermissible to watch pictures of animate objects on television even if the intention is to ponder over the creation of Allah.
2. A prohibition remains a prohibition even if there is apparent benefit in it.
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
