Praise be to Allaah.
No Muslim can doubt that the cinema that
exists nowadays is a house of sin, which spreads images of that which Allaah has forbidden, pictures of women who are clothed yet naked, walking
with an enticing gait. Indeed in many cases it propagates and promotes sinful sexual relationships between men and women. This is in addition to
the music and songs, and the films of crimes that corrupt society. It is haraam to spread and propagate each of these things, so how about if they
The point is that whatever is like that, it
is undoubtedly haraam and any money that comes from it is also haraam. Whoever says that the money earned from the cinema is halaal should examine
the situation of contemporary cinema, so that he may realize the error of what he is saying.
People should beware of allowing that which
Allaah has forbidden. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And say not concerning that which your tongues put forth falsely: ‘This is lawful and this is
forbidden,’ so as to invent lies against Allaah. Verily, those who invent lies against Allaah will never prosper.
A passing brief enjoyment (will be
theirs), but they will have a painful torment”
And Allaah knows best.
