Q: You know 90% people including muslims watch movies today which is very sad but my question is that when muslims watch movies where zina is shown other sins are shown and kufr and shirk is shown, then people come out of the cinema and say “Wow! That was and awesome movie”. Do these muslims become kafir by saying that?


A: It is obviously risking one’s faith. As a precaution they should repeat their kalimah and promise Allah Ta`ala that they will never go back to seeing such filth and dirt.

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