Islamic Movies

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Mahmoodiyah

Question:

Q1-IS IT PERMISSIBLE TO VIEW THE ISLAMIC MOVIE THE MESSAGE?


Answer:

 

The Prophet (S.A.W.) has cursed and declared keeping and creating portraits and animated images as Haraam.  A so-called Islamic movie might not contain music, etc but undoubtedly it portrays animated images which are unlawful, therefore it will be unlawful to view such movies.  (Aapke Masaail aur Unkaa Hal, Vol. 7, Page 384-391, Fataawaa Mahmoodiyah, Vol. 14, Page 424, Fataawaa Rahimiyyah, Vol. 1, Page 95)

And Allah Ta’ala knows best
