Children are very fond of playing video games. If they don’t have their own mobile phone or laptop, upon getting hold of their mother and father’s mobile or laptop, they instantly start playing games, though the craze for playing video games is extremely harmful.
Our honourable Shaykh-e-Tareeqat, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat ‘Allamah Muhammad Ilyas Attar Qaadiriدَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ has said: ’To destroy new generation of Muslims, enemies of Islam are creating and designing games aiming at distancing our children from Islamic teachings, making them inactive in practising religious obligations and even مَعَاذَاللّٰە developing hatred in their hearts against Islam’. (Noor Wala Chehrah, pp. 21)
Dear children! Your craze for video games may drag you away from your beloved religion ‘Islam’. Besides, it is also harmful to your health. Those children who play video games excessively can suffer from diseases such as vision impairment, headache etc. It is for the reason, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ advises children: ‘Be good children and make up your mind to always stay away from playing video games. In this way you will have goodness in ‘Hereafter life’ along with saving money and precious time in this world.’ (Noor Wala Chehrah, pp. 30-31)
Dear children! Instead of wasting time in playing video games, focus on your study and be a helping hand to your family members in your spare time. With your parent’s permission, you can also take part in such type of activity that is not harmful to your health and causes no loss to Islam either. May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ grant us a healthy life.
