Going to the cinema

Q: What is the ruling on going to the cinema?

A: Going to the cinema is unlawful, because most of the films displayed include seductive materials. Besides it wastes time on an activity that does not result in a permissible benefit for the Muslim himself, his family, or the Muslim nation as a whole. It also stops a person from making remembrance of Allah and doing his duty, etc. (Part No. 26; Page No. 278) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
