Fiqh of Chillin’ | Fun & Entertainment in Islam
Is it really that BLACK and WHITE?
While some are quick to flash their “haraam” card at everything minutely enjoyable, many others compromise their Islam in the name of fun – whether unknowingly or otherwise.
Is there a balance?
وَكَذَٰلِكَ جَعَلْنَاكُمْ أُمَّةً وَسَطًا
“And so we have made you a balanced nation”
Surat Baqarah: 143
Not only is there a balance, but we are commanded to find it.
Fun is Sunnah!
Would it surprise you to hear that having fun is actually part of the Sunnah?
We hear about the nobility and allure of the Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wassalam), his companions and the scholars to follow, and regard them as untouchables.
But what if you could learn about their other side: the fun, joking and maybe even prankster side of the greatest men and women to walk the Earth?
Food fights, town pranksters, and entertainment were always part of the lives of our forefathers. Certainly a place to start, no?
But Today is Different?
Today we’re surrounded by a different pop culture. And it’s just so darn magnetizing:
Glamorous fashion styles that spread like wildfire
Blockbuster movies and book-to-film adaptations
Sensational sport tourneys and idolized players
Virtual worlds thriving on social media & smart phones
Unavoidable music that instinctively makes your head bob
The list goes on, the temptations get stronger, and the lines just get blurrier.
In this seminar, you’ll break through the pandemonium and:
Reconcile between the need for amusement and need for religiosity
Debunk the myth that having fun is “haraam”
Learn how to have “a ball” without compromising spirituality
Break free from the Hollywood trance – gladly and willingly
Excel in a society where alcohol is prevalent
Capitalize on the fruits of Facebook, Twitter & YouTube
Become a complete Muslim – fun, content and happy
Everything is Halaal…
You’re probably afraid you’ll come out of this seminar learning everything you enjoy is haraam.
Rest assured, dear friend, for everything is halaal until proven haraam. That means the halaal infinitely outweighs the haraam in number.
Rest assured, dear friend, for every impermissible act, Allah (Swt) has created a sweeter, more blessed and fun alternative.
The Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wassalam) said:
“Whoever gives up something for the sake of Allah, Allah will compensate him with something better.”
The Fun Muslim
“Joking is Sunnah,
but only for those who know how to do it and do it at the appropriate time.”
Sufyan ibn ‘Uyaynah (rahimahullah)
Dear friend, you are invited in the spirit of fun to join the company of good friendship, and part after a single weekend with a wholesome feeling that feels just right.
