Fictional stories

Q:

I am an adult now and I don’t believe in superpowers. But i watch cartoons since they usually don’t have bad things and contain good teachings.  Will it be haram to watch cartoons where some characters have superpowers like ,they can see someone’s future for 5 mins, or detect lies etc? I know that no one can do this but Allah, but will just watching make one a sinner? Is there any quranic or hadith evidence?  Jazakallah.

A:

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

Thank you for your good question.

In fact, it may be beneficial to read literary works if the theme and the content are good as long as you don’t ignore your duties. You may also watch cartoons provided that the theme is good and this doesn’t negatively affect you in any way.

May Allah accept your and our good deeds, ameen.

Almighty Allah knows best.
