Halal Entertainment



My question is regarding entertainment in Islam.
What is halal for Muslims in terms of entertainment. For example my kids and even myself sometimes, like to watch movies and cartoons, but most cartoons and movies contain music. Another thing is playing and watching sports.We hope to be better Muslims inshAllah taala. I am asking these questions not to encourage a dunya life but to ask if entertainment is from rights of Muslims or disobediency. May Allah taala give us good understanding. Assalamualaikum.


Alaykum Salam,

Let them watch under your wing but prayer times everything is off and in sha Allah they will learn their spiritual values and priorities from you without undue strictness as the latter is a recipe for nifaq. It is related of Sayyidina Isa (upon him blessings and peace) that he said: if the bowstring is always taut the bow will eventually break.
