Spending time watching movies and soap operas and playing games in Ramadaan

Some fasting people spend most of the day in Ramadaan watching movies and soap operas on videos and TVs, and playing cards. What is the ruling on that?

Praise be to Allaah.


Muslims, whether they are
fasting or not, should fear Allaah with regard to what they are doing and
not doing at all times. They must avoid that which Allaah has forbidden,
namely watching obscene movies which show things that Allaah has forbidden
such as naked and semi-naked pictures, or reprehensible programs, or things
which appear on TV that go against the laws of Allaah, such as images,
singing, musical instruments and misleading ideas. Every Muslim, whether he
is fasting or not, must avoid playing with cards and other kinds of games,
because that involves witnessing evil and doing wrong, and because it also
causes hardness and disease in the heart, makes a person take the laws of
Allaah lightly and makes him find it too difficult to do the things that
Allaah has enjoined, such as praying in congregation and other obligations,
and makes him fall into doing many haraam things. Allaah says
(interpretation of the meaning): 

“And of mankind is he
who purchases idle talks (i.e. music, singing) to mislead (men) from the
path of Allaah without knowledge, and takes it (the path of Allaah, or the
Verses of the Qur’aan) by way of mockery. For such there will be a
humiliating torment (in the Hell-fire).

And when Our Verses
(of the Qur’aan) are recited to such a one, he turns away in pride, as if he
heard them not — as if there were deafness in his ear. So announce to him a
painful torment”[Luqmaan 31:6-7] 

And He says in Soorat
al-Furqaan, describing the slaves of the Most Merciful (interpretation of
the meaning): 

“And those who do not
bear witness to falsehood, and if they pass by some evil play or evil talk,
they pass by it with dignity”[al-Furqaan 25:72] 

Falsehood (al-zoor)
includes all kinds of evil, and the phrase “do not bear witness” means that
they do not attend where these things are happening. 

The Prophet (peace
and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There will be among my ummah
people who will permit adultery, silk, alcohol and musical instruments.”
(Narrated by al-Bukhaari in his Saheeh in a mu’allaq majzoom report).
What is meant by adultery is illegal sexual relations, and musical
instruments include singing. Allaah has forbidden to the Muslims all means
that lead to haraam things, and undoubtedly watching bad movies and the
evils that are shown on TV are among the means that lead to haraam things or
lead one to take such matters lightly without denouncing them. And Allaah is
the One Whose help we seek
