Q: My question is if a Muslim watches fictious super hero movies like spiderman and other super hero movies in which they show a super hero getting alive again after death. The superhero that is considered god of thunder, and other fictious movies which show devils, evil spirits (horror) etc. in. Does watching all these superhero movies nullify a person from Islam? I know watching movies is not permissible but I want to know does this nullify Islam? Because lot of children and adult Muslims watch super hero and horror movies of these types and enjoy.


A: He could bring himself right to the brink of apostasy and disbelief. He should sincerely make taubah and refrain from this.

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