Q: Is it permissable to watch Islamic channels eg. Peace TV in Ramadaan?
A:Television, even Islamic programs, is not permissible because of the photography that is part of TV. Photos and pictures of people are haraam and not permissible. We advise that during Ramadaan, instead of watching TV, engage in recitation of Quran, thikr of Allah, durood, istighfaar and nafl salaah. In this way you will make your Ramadaan more beneficial. It is a waste of precious time to watch television.
May Allah Ta'ala give us understanding of Deen and the ability to do much worship in this month, aameen.
