Q:

Assalamu Alaikum, I am learning game development. I wanna know about digital drawing and instrumental musics.I saw Mufti Menk,Free quran education… they are using digital drawings and some of their characters contain full facial features. So can I use digital drwaing of human and other animals with full facial features??? And I saw some pakistani songs they are using traditional instruments like duff, some instruments that contains strings ect. So can I use this Instrumental musics in the background of my game??  And also is it halal to make killing games ?? And  if I avoid nudity in my games..

A:

Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

The Islamic ethics govern games and sports; the halal of it is halal, and the haram is haram.

The game as a pastime and outlet is allowed if one does not become addicted to it. And they do not have any negative influences on the gamer. Therefore, there is no room in Islam for games that encourage or glorify violence or impart unethical values.

The use of drawings and characters is allowed as long as they are intended for communication purposes – as long as it is free of taints of shirk or association of partners with Allah.

 Allah Almighty knows best.
