Assalamualaikum. There is a history channel Rai storia that 24/7 gives documentaries about history.

MY QUESTION IS: If i watch a documentary about Alexander The Great. And in parts of the documentary it shows Alexander worshiping idols and prostrating to them. And i don't change or mute the channel during the time it shows Alexander worshiping idols. My question is:

Am i included in those 2 ayah that say:

{And when you see those who engage in [offensive] discourse concerning Our verses, then turn away from them until they enter into another conversation. And if Satan should cause you to forget, then do not remain after the reminder with the wrongdoing people.} [Al An'aam 6:68].

{And it has already come down to you in the Book that when you hear the verses of Allah being denied or ridiculed [by the disbelievers or hypocrites]; then do not sit with them until they enter into another conversation. Indeed, you would then be like them. Indeed Allah will gather the hypocrites and disbelievers in Hell all together.} [An-Nisaa 4:140

Do i commit kufr simply by watching that part of the documentary about Alexander The Great?

  • You also read the qur'an and it quotes acts of disbelief I don't see that much difference from the historical/learning perspective. The point is how you act upon it from the perspective of faith. Do you look at it and seek refuge by Allah and are thankful for being a believer or do you like what you see? Further if what you see may include seeing 'awrah etc. you should change the channel or lower your gaze until the scenery has changed. – Medi1Saif Aug 5 '20 at 8:32
