Games with shirk

Question

Salam,

Are games like God of War haram to play( I don't want to play the game but I was curious about this) if you don't believe in the fictional "God" or play the game just because it's a fun game and you enjoy playing it while only staying on the path of Allah (s.w.t.).

Jazakallah

Salam. Who actually produces games? People who want to get lost in this world.. People of Aakhirah (Ulemas, Marajes) don't appreciate playing video games (for a guy aged 14+) because it ultimately distracts him to an extent that he gets away and away from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى.

Instead playing games one can go play a physical sport with the Niyyah of keeping oneself fit so that he could worship his Lord more and more. And by Worship I mean doing every act to Please God that can only be done if one has a fit body.

 

Feed your Brain with Ilm (Knowledge). Go and read books which are worth reading. Books on Tawhid, Imamah and many prominent Hadeeth books, etc. Don't waste your precious time doing something with ain't real and with which God is not pleased with you.

God has given you your time as a Nemat. Use it wisely and just to please him. Work upon your soul.

I hate it when people waste their time playing something that is a tool for Shaytaan.

Wassalam.

Its not the game but the person.

If one's faith is so weak that playing a video game will cause them to believe in something like the Greek pantheon then they need to take a good look at themselves. That game series sold millions worldwide and we haven't seen a major uptick in Muslims leaving Islam to worship the Greek gods in that game.

(On a side note, the God of War series was prob one of the best video game series out there as far as graphics and storyline.)

    • Salaam Alaykum When I was back home, I thought my dad is abusive. He made me cry at 2 am by creating a family fight. That time I was 7 years old. A 7 years old boy was crying at 2 am. A 7 years old was in the middle of family problem with a HUGE amount of stress. Now I gained the freedom that you are seeking. Now after living seven years away from my dad, I just want to see my same dad and kiss his feet and hands for his effort on raising me. He never let me grow up on street, he supported me financially. I'm grateful for that. I wish I could squeeze his hands one more time. When I have stress and pressure, I need my dad support.   To the OP: you're dad is a good man. One time with all of those restrictions that you have, just sit down and have a tee and biscuits with him and enjoy.  
    • It does not look pretty. They freak me out. Wear an aqeeq and call it a day please!
    • Salaam First part: what's that?  Second part: no I wear aqeeq, dur e Najaaf, feroz, yaqoot. I also have the threads we touch the zaris with in ziyarat. 
    • Everyhing is instant now a days  Fine....
    • One muslim asked me that why we do latmiyah and cry, so I told because of mourning the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (saws) martyrdom, then he answer: "So you beat yourselves to this day for that reason.. Really.." And that's how it saddens to hear how the hearth have become so blind, that nothing but insulting the 'Aali Muhammad.
