Q: Evil thoughts starts coming when I watch movies, so I stopped watching it, but is it shirk if I I watch because the thoughts are still coming. Like if I watch again it will be like I am letting shaithaan make me do sin and shirk, but that’s not my thought. So is it shirk if I watch a movie with this mindset?
A: Make istighfaar and make ta`leem in the mornings and evenings.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
