Assalaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullaah,

I would like to know if there are any Fatwa prohibiting children and adults from watching documentaries on the animal world (e.g. ?Discovery Channel?), and other than that (e.g. on travelling, tribes in some remote lands, etc). These documentaries are broadcasted by way of dedicated satellite channels.

Some people claim that there is no harm in watching them, as we need to be aware of what is happening around us and learning about the animal world, etc?.

But I would like to get the opinions of Ahl-ilm on this specific matter.

Was Salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah
Umm Abdul Azeez

al-Hamdu-Lillaahi Rabbil-'Aalameen was-Salaatu was-Salaamu 'alaa Ashrafil-Anbiyaa'e wal-Mursaleen, wa ba'd:

The following is a question that was asked to Imaam Muqbil on the permissibility of watching television.  It is very important that being people of Sunnah we look at the daleel that Ahlul-Ilm give with regards to various issues and follow that which is closest to the Quraan and Authentic Sunnah with the Understanding of the Salaf-us-Saleh.

Question: These days the television and video exist which ruins the youth and causes division in their thinking and they become blind followers of the enemies of Islaam. So what is the way or how do we advise the people to avoid this devil (the T.V.), and what are the harms that are caused by this television?

For the answer of the Imaam (rahimahullaah ta'ala) click the link

Barakallahu feekum for this 'reminder' and also the link to Shaikh Muqbil's Fatwa regarding this important subject.

Here is some further clarification on this issue insha'Allaah from Imaam Muqbil again:

Question: Some people, if you argue against them by mentioning the fact that the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) prohibited the gaze (i.e. looking at members of the opposite sex who are not one's relatives), and likewise Allaah (glory be unto Him, the Most High) prohibited the gaze (at members of the opposite sex) in a verse (of the Qur'aan), the person does not consider the picture that he sees on the television to be the same as this form or image (of a woman) that he sees on the street, for example. He says (about the picture on TV), "This is just a picture."
