I've watched many cooking videos on youtube and I normally see a lot of people cook things that are haraam. For example, pork belly, beef wellington (contains bacon), vanilla ice cream (vanilla extract), and other things that if I were to eat it would be haraam.

I always wondered if watching those videos would be haraam. I have no intention of making the foods either, I am just watching the videos themselves.

I don't know very much about the ayat and sunnah so I can't find out if it is haraam or not. Can someone please help me find an answer? Jazakallah, Assalamualaikum my dear brothers and sisters.


If you don't have any intention to cook your eat then it is not a sin. But why would you watch those videos that are just wasting your time and doesn't benefit you? I think you got your answer. Jazakallah Khair
