Playing football

Q: Is the playing of football (as opposed to watching) permissible if one’s satar is not exposed, Salaah with Jamat is not missed, there is no swearing, arguing etc and the intention is to keep physically fit?


A: If it is just informal playing and unorganised and there is no other haraam element involved then it is permissible.

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