Video games

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have a question, when I am not doing my coursework or studying Islam, reciting Quran, surahs, doing nafl actions, I like to play video games a little and in these video games you have to shoot bad people. These games don’t contain any nudity, excessive gore, witchcraft or anything haraam. Could you tell me if these are halaal?


A: Avoid it. These types of games are not at all appropriate for Muslims, in fact for all good people.

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