Going to Movies and Cinemas.

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


Is it permissible to go to movies and cinemas?


It is totally Haraam (unlawful) to go to movies and cinemas. Such places and environments are filled with a tremendous amount of evil and sinful deeds, which can bring about the wrath and punishment of Allah.

According to a tradition recorded by Imam Bukhaari, the Prophet (S.A) is reported to have said that a person must protect his ‘Deen’ (Islam) from such evil and sinful places.

There is absolutely no sound, authentic and reliable Scholar of Islam who has allowed such practices.

And Allah knows best.
