  1. No it's not. Don't worry, we have enough of those threads I know we are not to expose sins, but this one is debatable. I love chess. I'd go as far as to say it is a passion of mine. Now I can somewhat understand it can be time consuming and even addictive, especially with apps like chess.com (I love the bullet 1 minute games). I even play in person with a friend once a week. I mostly win. But whilst I love Ayatullah Sistani (Allah preserve him) and appreciate his works and opinions, I just grapple with chess being haram. But such is the nature of taqlid I guess. Chess is something I'd want to teach and pass down, ideally and I feel there are benefits from it. But knowing I'm doing haram by playing each time can be disheartening. If I'm being realistic to myself, I honestly do not think I would want to give chess up indefinitely. Is it an excuse to say I'm merely fallible and prone to this sin? I do not think I have repented specifically for this either. It's a tough one and decisions I must live with ultimately. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) guide us all.
