BEFORE YOU READ: I already know there are some questions here and on other sites on the ruling of games and it's elements etc. But i still don't think i have found a specific answer to my question, so here goes.

Is the game Minecraft forbidden? You basically make a new world. Would that count as imitating Allah?

Not only that, there are also different types of things that questioned me, such as zombies (undead), witchcraft, enchantments, and different dimensions.

Please, i'd like a serious response, not those “it's just pixels on a screen that goes on-and-off” answers.


creating and ruling on something which entertains you is not bad but you should admit you creation is temporary and ALLAH almighty made more than you.

prohibited about games in Islam:

  • In your creation the face with eye should not involve.
  • did not waste your time of prayers.
  • must involve some kind of creativity and logical.

hope this answer will help you.

  • Sorry, but i don't necessarily understand your answer on the first and last points. What do you mean with them? – sml fan since 2010 Aug 26 '19 at 5:58
  • Also yes, i totally admit that Allah's creation is more than what i did and that mine is just a fake and a temporary. – sml fan since 2010 Aug 26 '19 at 5:59
  • Honestly now that i think about it, those “enchantments”, is it really magic though? Most people use those enchantments to just upgrade their items. @shoaib sabir – sml fan since 2010 Aug 26 '19 at 12:15
  • in first point i said according to Islam you are prohibited to make faces if you made face on the day of judgement you have make him alive as punishment which you can't do – shoaib sabir Aug 26 '19 at 14:37
  • at end point I said that according to Islam the must involve something efforts physically or mentally those games who didn't involve any efforts by you is also prohibited in Islam the dice games are prohibited. – shoaib sabir Aug 26 '19 at 14:42
