Praise be to Allah.

One of the greatest danger faced by the children is posed by electronic media: games and cartoons. The dangers are than what parents can prevent on their own and sometimes parents too are not aware of the dangers of certain things. If the head of the family is not vigilant and pay attention to the dangers of the society then the family members may go astray and be doomed.

Nowadays, children are exposed to the animated cartoon that has pornographic content in them. These movies may seem normal for gullible parents and he may think that the child is engaged with cartoons but the reality is that the child is left to understand the evil things on his own and most of the times he takes them positively are deem them right.

We must understand that education in childhood is like the engraving on the stone and whatever you write on it will be established there for the rest if his life. If same lessons are taught with the help of moving images, sounds, and other tools, obviously the impact is greater and stronger. They will put the same thing into action much easier than what is being told.

If a negating is instilled in a child he will act upon it thus going astray. These things lead a child/person to commit crimes like theft, murder etc. One can imagine the effect of the animated pornographic movie in the minds of children. They will try to put that in action and think the worst to be good. They will acknowledge kissing, nakedness, embracing and other haraam things as perfectly normal and acceptable. It will be hard to take them away from it once the evil is established in them as they will either be too young to really understand what they are doing, or they will be at the threshold of puberty, and this poses a huge danger.

The content of these pornographic animated cartoons is pure evil, that leads to nothing but the destruction of families, erosion of morals in their children, development of a love of sex in their hearts, the wiping out of all modesty from them and the death of chastity in their hearts. All that is the result of their being influenced by what they see in these provocative cartoons. Even adults are not safe from their provocative effects, so how can children and those who are in early adolescence be safe?

They will develop habits and behaviors that are evil and harmful to them, their family and society as a whole.

Such a thing can never be permitted in Islam , rather Islam prohibits it and warns against its ill effects. The evidence for this prohibition on watching it includes the following:


Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what they do.” [an-Noor 24:30].

there is no difference between watching a non-mahram woman who appears as she was originally created, or looking at a still image, or a moving image, or a picture that was drawn by hand. How can the ruling be otherwise when what is being watched or looked at is nakedness and provocative sexual scenes?


Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

“The hearing, and the sight, and the heart, of each of those you will be questioned (by Allah)”

[al-Isra’ 17:36].

The sight is answerable to what it sees and the ears are answerable to what it hears. The shameful scenes that a person watches are haraam and are questioned on the day of judgment.


It was narrated that ‘Abdullah ibn Mas‘ood (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “No woman should look at another woman then describe her to her husband so that it is as if he is looking at her.

Narrated by al-Bukhaari (4942)

Merely describing a non-mahram woman is forbidden then how can watching or looking at something so evil be permitted which is also accompanied by motion and sound.

Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

Al-Qaasibi said: This is a basic principle for Maalik with regard to blocking the means that may lead (to evil). The wisdom behind this prohibition is that there is the fear that the husband may be impressed by the description mentioned, which may lead to him divorcing the woman who described the other one to him or becoming infatuated with the one who was described to him.

Fath al-Baari (9/338)

Foe anyone claiming that they are not affected by these movies and these movies doesn't stop him from doing obligatory duties then he must understand that even if they don't feel the effect, it is still forbidden and haraam as these contain the things that Allah has warned us against. Looking at them causes a person to cross the sacred limits of religion that Allah has prescribed.

Everyone who is in a position of authority should strike with an iron fist everyone who tampers with the morals of the Muslims, and they should not allow such movies, otherwise, they will be partners in sin.

And Allah knows best.
