The Ruling on Using the Cinema In Calling to Allah – Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad

Question: What is the ruling on using the cinema in calling to Allah? We have heard some callers permitting this.

Answer: “There is no good in the cinema and it does not bring except evil. It does not bring good. A person should leave off calling to Allah through these means, rather he should use the remaining means that are legislated. As for the cinema which has evil and fitan, then this is not the correct path to call to Allah, the Exalted”.

[Sharh Sunan Tirmidhi no. 270]
