Is this true, is watching sport on tv allowed? Or is it haraam?

Salaam!Some people believe that watching soccer on t.v is not haraam as it is not like watching a filthy movie on tv or some hollywood movie, but it is just watching a sport. Thus they say that watching sport is permissible but watching other movies on tv and other programmes are haraam. Is this true, is watching sport on tv allowed? Or is it haraam??Please clarify for me…Jazakallah Khair

Answer

It is not permissible to watch television at all regardless of whether one is merely watching sports or movies. There are various factors which render watching television in general to be prohibited. Besides being futile and a waste of time, photography, music, men looking at strange women and vice versa, men looking at the Satar of other men, etc. and the likes thereof are all totally prohibited in Islam and will, therefore, render the watching of television in general as not permissible. and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best Mufti Ebrahim Desai
