The well-known Egyptian scholar and Da`iyah Sheikh `Abdul-Khaleq Hasan Ash-Shareef, states the following: “If the movies, books and video games are watched for innocent fun, then there is nothing wrong with watching them or reading them. The permissibility here can’t be an absolute one as each individual case is studied thoroughly to issue a sound ruling. More or all, watching such movies should be done as an occasional outlet.”
