Husband watching TV

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My husband watches TV a lot. I don’t like the TV at all. I have some questions, is it fine if I tell him while he is watching TV or Youtube videos about something Islamic? Like for example I said today while he was watching a Youtube video, “today is the 10th of Muharaam we can buy food”, or is it wrong and should I wait for when he is not in front of the TV or watching  Youtube videos? I thought that talking about Islamic things like that is wrong while he is watching haraam but I still did it. Also if I am in the kitchen and I can hear the music from the TV, and some sauces and spice bottles that stay in the kitchen have eyes on it and I am talkikng on the phone to a friend and I use words as “Insha Allah” and “make Dua” “Allah knows best” etc is that also wrong? I am doing that at the moment and I am feeling guilty please advise?


A: You may talk to him but you should not  join him in this wrong.

It is permissible. Just scratch out the facial features.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
