Kids going to the cinema

Fatwaa ID: 1419

Assalamu alaikum mufti saab.
Can you please clarify my doubt…Kids are taken to cinema(kids movie) from school as outing…is it allowed to send my kids?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

It is not permissible to allow one’s children to be taken to the cinemas and movies. “Kids’ movies” aren’t so kid friendly anymore. Furthermore, the haraam content even in such movies cannot be ruled out. The nurturing of a child starts from a young age. You must be actively cognizant of that and ensure that your child’s upbringing and values are not compromised.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
