If a Muslim goes to the movies at a time that it does not come in the way of Salaah to watch a movie that is not rated is this person doing haraam?
Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,
الجواب و بالله التوفيق
Going to the movies is haram in Islam. Whether it comes in the way of Salaah or not, and whether it is rated or not, it remains haram. As such, one must abstain from this sinful practice.
And Allah Knows Best.
