Name : submittername
Question:     Assalamalaikum wa Rahmatullah

Mufti Sahab, what are the forms of recreation in Islam and what are the occasions?  What are the rules of recreation? What should be the recreation and of what kind?

............................................................................
Answer:     Walaikum Assalamalaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakutuhu,

At all times and especially at the time of recreation, the following should be kept in mind:

Indecency (Bepardagi – Urdu) should be avoided.  Free mixing of the sexes should be avoided.  A Non-Mahram should not even be seen.  Impermissible poetry or songs, etc. should not be heard.  Useless talk should not be there.  

So great a time should not be sent in recreation that other religious and social responsibilities are affected.  The five daily Salaat should not be ignored.  In picnics, etc. joking, humor, etc. can be done, but it should not involve lies, cheating of any kind and no one should be hurt or humiliated.  

In short, no Fardh should be ignored and no forbidden act should be committed.  With these rules, recreation is permissible.
