Assalamu waleikum… Am a 36 years old married male from India. I want to know whether writing story for a movie or directing a movie is halal, where i ensure that that movie is completely free from obscence scenes and dialigues, no songs, no intimacy between characters, etc. , a movie fully watchable by family. Kindly clarify in detail as am in planning to chose script writing or direction as my career further for such films.
Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.
In so far as a movie is clear and free from obscene scenes and carries a message that is ethical and moral, it cannot be considered as haram. Nay, it may even be one of the most beneficial tools for education.
So, you should have no inhibitions once you are satisfied that your work provides an essential service.
Almighty Allah knows best.
