Watching films

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Please what is the Islamic ruling with regards to watching films?


A: All our ulama of the past declared this to be a waste of time, a cause of corruption, and a combination of haraam activities, like music, animate pictures, viewing males and females, etc. If this does not destroy the heart and corrupt the mind then what will?

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