Respected Mufti
there is company called Electronic Arts which made a game called Battle field 4 at last mission of the Battlefield 4 game the cartoon character said verbally “what the f***? Christ! Where did that come from?” also the game show written dialog which is “IRISH: what the f***? GARRISON: Christ! Where did that come from?” They did not censor the word f*** verbally and in written foam. I also add the link which is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPOGFHvEGRo please fast forward to 15:43 to see and hear the dialog. So my question is did they disrespected Prophet Jesus Christ in Battlefield4 game or is it just a dialog As Muslim can I play Battle field 4 game or other games of Electronic Arts

Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wabarakatuhu,

It is not be permissible to play such a game. Besides the vulgar and disrespectful language, it is also not permissible to play any game which has animate objects, music or violence.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
