Q: A close friend of mine informed me that it is haraam to read Harry Potter books and watch the movies. I always watch them with family because they don’t contain any sexual remarks and such things. Are they indeed haraam?
A: This book contains works of witchcraft kufr and disbelief. In some respects this will be even worse than pornography.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
