Video games involving shirk.
« on: January 07, 2013, 12:21:21 AM »
Asalamwalaikum warahmatullah

There is a famous video game out there called God of War and it contains major shirk such as polytheism.  It is about Greek mythology and a character who kills the gods and then takes their power.  It start's off as he wanted strength to win the war so he asks the god of war to make him extremely strong so he can beat his enemies in battle.  The god of war gives him powers, it overwhelms him, and he kills his family.  Then he goes off to kill the god of war, takes his powers and lives.  Then the father or leader of the gods betrays the main character.  Then he sets out to kill the leader of the gods along with the other gods, through all of this he gains a lot of powers and kills the gods.  A lot of Muslims play this game and I was wondering if it is shirk or kufr to play this knowing that you go around killing these so called gods and its theme revolves around polytheism?  Keep in mind that we know that there is no god worthy of worship besides Allah and that all this Greek mythology is false.  Jazakallah

I think that as long as it doesnt affect our religion and doesnt makes us think of polytheism, then it is OK.

"I think that as long as it doesnt affect our religion and doesnt makes us think of polytheism, then it is OK."

No , it isn't . Doing something involving what's forbidden thinking that it won't affect you isn't an excuse . Because seeing something or hearing it for a long time will make the person deem it ok . That's the case with these scumbags who don't bother when the prophet all peace and blessings upon him is insulted . And as we say in Arabic "Stay away from evil and sing for it" which means to be aware of anything bad .

P.S Don't ask about the singing . Even I don't know what it means .

So it is a sin to play it, but not shirk or kufr?  Just to be sure because my muslims friends play this game. 

just a side note: There is an atheist in my school who insults the prophet on a very high scale.  I got into a fight with him and i completely disproved his atheism theory and i defended islam while the christians were silent.  Funny thing is, he made fun of jesus so idk why the christians were silent.  I was extremely upset over the things he said and the things he showed me.  i took his pictures and i didnt give it back until he told the teacher...such a coward...wouldnt fight for hist stuff.,because he has nothing to fight or stand for.

Jazakallah

It's only shirk if non-Wahabbis do it. Btw, Bowing down to the Ka'abah is also shirk, so too bad we're all going to hell :(

Did you study what constitutes shirk in Islam ,before you make such wild assertion?!

DrShafi, As-Salamu `Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh akhi,
Al-Hamdulillah I made a scientific theory proving the existence of Almighty Allah. First, let us all agree the Big Bang happened. But there's one problem there - who or what caused the particles to move? Newton's second law of motion states that all objects have enertia; therefore, all objects must have an external force acted upon them to move. The only existing force that could have existed was Almighty Allah, as everything else (even time and space) only came after the Big Bang.

Brother There is only One God, is never knew Prophet Muhammad and Prophet Abraham and all the other Prophets and Messengers of God (may Almighty Allah grant them peace and bless them) were Wahabis. Also, I never knew Prophet Muhammad (may Almighty Allah bless him and grant him peace) and his honorable Companions (may Almighty Allah be pleased with them) committed Shirk. Brother, stop being scitzofernic. The devil will attempt to make you have doubts in religion and feel unsure about your faith and say useless things like that. If you have any doubts, ask somebody and don't make useless assumptions.

That would be great to use but he isn't that smart.  Everytime he comes to me all he says is Muhammad is a pedophile and if god didn't write the Bible, who did?  He just slanders christianity and thinks that proves Islam wrong.  Anyway I stopped talking to him and he isn't an atheist because he truly believes in the big bang.  He told me he doesn't like limitations and he just wants to start a band and be with a girl.  Also, he has home problems which he mindlessly blames on religion.  Either way, he will never change his ways.  Jazakallah

I can't really say it's a sin because I'm not sure . But I AM sure that it is bad .

Yet again , your hate and rage doesn't fail to surprise me .

Who are we supposed to believe , you , or God himself ?

2:144 We have certainly seen the turning of your face, [O Muhammad], toward the heaven, and We will surely turn you to a qiblah with which you will be pleased. So turn your face toward al-Masjid al-Haram. And wherever you [believers] are, turn your faces toward it [in prayer]. Indeed, those who have been given the Scripture well know that it is the truth from their Lord. And Allah is not unaware of what they do.

It's disturbing how you have the nerve to say such absurd things ! Don't you even respect Quran ?

There is nothing as Wahabi in the first place . They are just names these foolish ones made to make people fear ANYONE who says to follow Quran and the sayings of the prophet peace upon him . There are only Muslims . As for , Wahabi , Ikhwani , Salafi , they are all just false names given to divide Muslims .

peace
im no scholar, or at most i'm a semi-scholar
anyway i would like to say that the purpose of the game is not to mislead others from Islam
if it doesn't affect our religion and doesn't makes us think of polytheism or distract us from prayer then it is ok to play, at most it is makruk to play it.
but if you think you cant play it or if you think there is a risk, then stop.
Personally, i dont play, i play games like total war, fifa, assassins creed, etc.
