Question: So like this, Oh Eminent Shaikh, is it allowed to visit the museums like the pyramids and other than it?
Shaikh: It is allowed.
Questioner: However, to gain an exhortation or not? Like this?
Shaikh: For an exhortation, lesson, information. From the angle of:
عرفت الشر لا للشر ولكن لتوقيه ***ومن لا يعرف الشر من الخير يقع فيه
I learn evil not for the sake of evil but to avoid it
The one who does not know evil from good will fall into it
