It’s estimated that three billion folks play some kind of online game, whether or not on a pc, console, or sensible cellphone. For the thousands and thousands of Muslims included on this quantity, what’s the halal and haram of this? Is gaming a great factor? When is gaming a foul factor?
“I know a lot of kids in our community who play Minecraft to develop skills. I respect that because it’s now a tool being used for their education.” -Mufti Hussain Kamani
In this podcast, Zeba Khan talks to Mufti Hussain Kamani, a hafiz, scholar, and -surprise!- gamer, concerning the Islamic perspective on gaming, leisure, and the fiqh of FIFA loot packing containers.
“Do loot boxes and their contents carry any value or not? Is there a monetary value to that Messi card? If it’s all ones and zeros then you can’t technically classify that as gambling, but I believe that’s too simplistic. We live in a world of cryptocurrency. There are things that carry value beyond physical objects.” – Mufti Hussain Kamani
