We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Dear brother, Acting is discouraged because most modern dramas have unsuitable language, dance, romance etc., which only incites indecency in the viewers mind and heart. If you take part in a drama which promotes indecency, lewdness, then surely you would be held severely accountable in moulding young minds towards indecency. One has to choose ones profession in accordance with the guidance of Quran and Sunnah in order to flourish in this world and in the hereafter.

However, If you partake in dramas that do not transgress any of the limits of Shariah and are socially good with moral content then there would be no harm.

The income one generates from promoting indecency and doing indecency is with out any doubt Haram. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
