This question already has an answer here:

Just light stuff like Mario or Pokemon or something along those lines. I want to be able to play these games but I'm not sure if it falls under witchcraft and if it is haram or not.

I know magic like this isn't possible for people to do and the magic talked about in the Quran refers to curses in stuff, but is this also considered haram?

    What makes you think it could be haram? – Medi1Saif Aug 22 '17 at 6:27
  • Huh, Pokémon it is a haram game, because it kills you. Have you heard news about what happened when a Chinese teacher was walking on the street playing Pokémon, and then she got hit by a car? That’s how dangerous it is. Well, that depends on what Pokémon are you talking about, either Pokémon normal or Pokémon Go, but Pokémon Go is a clean suicide. – Alex A Nov 21 '17 at 6:28

    @AlexA "Pokémon it is a haram game, because it kills you. Have you heard news about what happened when a Chinese teacher was walking on the street playing Pokémon, and then she got hit by a car? That’s how dangerous it is." By that logic, reading a book regardless of content is haram because if you get distracted by it, you can be careless enough to get run over in traffic. That's not a valid fiqh argument. – G. Bach Nov 21 '17 at 13:51

    We seek effortful questions showing prior research. Asking about permissibility without indicating a reason it's not the default ruling is considered off-topic. Please edit the question accordingly. See How do we answer a question “Is X haram?” when there's no reason to think X is haram? – Rebecca J. Stones Apr 13 '18 at 3:29

The magic that Islam talks about includes curses and spells to hurt others or any other bad intentions. Probably u know what I mean.

Showing tricks is NOT magic. It's just a well-made trick which secret can be revealed, So it's not the magic that uses Jin, devils or spirits to achieve the goal. People who use Jinn and devils are considered as (Outlaws) they are out of Islam.

Computer games don't use spells or devil. Mario is not even a magic!. it's just a graphic game

computer games are not magic.

  • I think the question is about magic in video games, not whether video games are themselves magic. For example, RPGs that have people in then that can use magic. – PointlessSpike Oct 26 '17 at 13:08
  • Spirits? I thought the spirits stay on their graves till the Day of Judgment and only those who are good can visit each other’s grave and they don’t need to visit beyond cimintery according to Islamic point of view. – Alex A Feb 19 '18 at 20:53
