I am a Chartered Accountant and I work in the Finance Department of a company whose main business is to run a television channel which airs conventional programs like dramas, films, songs etc.
As-Salamu `alaykum Waramatullah Wabarakatuh! Gentlemen, thanks for your efforts in teaching people about Islam. The question I have for you is that, as you know, watching TV has become a controversial issue among people, for some people say it’s permissible, while others condemn it. What is your opinion on this?
As-Salamu `alaykum! Could you please clarify the Islamic stance on the prize TV shows, which attract many participants through local and international phone calls?
