Assalamu ealaykum , i play a videogame for a while and its going according to islamic conditions so alhamdulilah i get to relax a bit after finishing my daily duties , but i found out that adjusting my character size/head/hair shape color etc is forbidden since its considered imitating the creation of allah (basicaly like the bitmoji app) , and so i stopped doing that , but now my character is already customized and the game is an online game where people get to see my already customized character , is it mandatory for me to restart a new base character with 0 modifications and play again or is it okay if i continue since i tought at the time that this is halal ? thank you

Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

Although we are unaware of the dynamics of the game, from your query we understand that there are animate pictures. Hence, you should not play this game.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best

Wassalaam,
