Working as an actor

A: It is not permissible for a Muslim to work as an actor due to what is involved of belittling the acted well-known figures that the characters represent and (Part No. 26; Page No. 266) joke and idle play that do not befit the Muslim. Therefore, we advise you to quit this job and seek another source of income through other lawful channels. Indeed, a Muslim who abandons a prohibited thing for the sake of Allah, Allah compensates him with something better. Allah (Exalted be He) says, And whosoever fears Allâh and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. Perhaps your brother's wife wants her children to forsake you in order to make you dislike your work and this is a good intention - In sha’a-Allah (if Allah wills). If she intends otherwise, it will not be permissible to sever the ties of kinship - it is one of the major sins.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
