The Muslims show cartoon

Q: Is the cartoon the Muslim show within the Shariah and not considered drawing animate things? Is it permissible to read them?


A: Our deen is not play and amusement, entertainment and a pastime. To make deen a thing of amusement really is not understanding the greatness of Allah Ta`ala and His esteem. This behaviour can be expected of kuffaar. It is something very difficult to comprehend that Muslims can stoop down to the levels of kuffaar.

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