I was speaking to a good friend of mine who told me that watching movies like Stargate http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111282/?ref_=nv_sr_3 or Lord of the Rings http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120737/?ref_=nv_sr_1 or Thor http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0800369/?ref_=nv_sr_3 and others of the likes of these are 100% HARAM..

 

Now I love movies and I asked a few different marja and could not get a clear answer, so what does the SC community think?

If Marja gave no answer on this then

 

Provide me download links or DVD for these movies please, i will check and will inform you if they are haraam for you or not.

 

Your one funny cracker brother lol

 

The marja is not very clear on this issue. If you live in Pakistan or India you can buy it for $1 at your local shop so there you go Sobhan Allah.

If i found it haraam for you , it will automatically become haraam for me. As Imam Hussain (as) said clearly .. How can someone recommend something to someone and not for himself. In short .. If you are giving suggestion for good to someone , do it yourself too.

 

In that case my $1 will become Invalid. And putting my hard earned money in Haraam can lead to many trouble. And this need another thread to discuss ...

 

Jokes apart

 

If you will ask to any Marja , Shall i watch Thor movie is it haraam or halaal. Then obiviously they will never reply as they have no time to check that movie or there staff. Better ask what is ruling for Entertainment related to Movies/Shows/Tv Drama etc. And i am sure they have ruling for it.

 

One ruling i found  But it have special condition ( Sexual Content )

The movie may be Haram based on how it effects you.

 

If it contains beautiful women then it's haram for you, since even if you don't have lust then your standard bar will be raised high and you will view beautiful people as ugly.

 

Or it might arouse within you desires for wealth or power or violence. 

 

So it is better to avoid watching movies since they are not educational or helpful in any way.

 

You have to judge for yourself and see if it is harmful to you or not and if it is harmful then its haram.

 

I think.

Through the years I've developed this general rule of thumb and it says that if something can give you outstanding joy and does not cause pain or regret (like marriage) then its haram.

Brother Khalilallah, almost every movie has beautiful women, I think that I am mature enough to not get lustful every time I see a beautiful women lol I live in the west so if I even go to buy bread and milk, I see half naked women everywhere. 

 

The point was not about the lust, because if I wanted to watch movies for that reason I can watch porn . My question was based on the types of movies in my OP as I have included links there.

 

For example, in the movie Stargate, they have characters that portray themselves as god astagfurallah. Now when you ask a marja there answer is not clear.

There are many types of movies. It is true that commercial modern tv shows and movies tend to have inappropiate stuff in them (sexual images, themes, etc.). To be honest it has reached a point in which it is even boring...

There are plenty of classical movies which are way better and don't have these annoying themes in them. I personally like a lot from the 50s. Culturr was different and it was not so common to show some themes in those movies and shows.
