The Ruling on Going to Amusement Parks- Shaikh Ibn ul-Uthaymeen

Question: Oh Owner of Virtue, many Parents go with their children to what is called Children’s amusement parks. In it are oppositions to the Shariah, such as some women displaying their bodies. The children are severely eager to go to these amusement parks. So what is the legislated ruling on going there?

Answer: “These amusement parks, as our questioner mentioned, have in them evils. So if a place has evils, then if a person is able to remove these evils it is obligatory upon him to attend to remove them. As for if he is unable, then it is haram upon him to attend. So now we say: take your children to the open land and that will suffice. As for taking them to the amusement park in which there is free-mixing and in it are foolish people who flirt with women. In it are [women wearing] clothing which are not permissible for women to wear. So it is not permissible for a him to go there, unless he is able to remove the evil”.
