In Bollywood I know màny actors with muslim names (I do not want to take their names).Many of our Muslim brothers like them and consider themselves as their fans and ask ALLAAH’s blessing for them. what is the view point of Islam on this topic because this is widespread in social media?


Surah An-Nahl(16), Verse 3:
خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ بِالْحَقِّ تَعَالَىٰ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ

He has created the heavens and the earth for just ends: Far is He above having the partners they ascribe to Him!
(English – Yusuf Ali)

MOST GRACIOUS loves to obey Him and hates disobedience. If anyone loves those who MOST GRACIOUS hates obviously MOST GRACIOUS does not love him and if anyone hates those whom MOST GRACIOUS hates, He loves them. This is true Love and Faith in MOST LOVING, MOST MERCIFUL.

Coming to the question, I am aware that there are many Bollywood actors, singers and artistes with Muslim name and most of our Muslim brethren love them and admire them, which MOST GRACIOUS does not like intact He, The Blessed hates it.

I will list some Quran and saheeh ahadeeth which profession of acting, singing and other activities of Bollywood Industry are which MOST GRACIOUS hates and punish with serve punishment in this world and with Hellfire in Hereafter.

(1) Profession of signing is highly disgusting in the sight of, Most Blessed, if anyone does that the painful punishment is awaiting him

Surah Luqman(31), Verse 6:
وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَشْتَرِي لَهْوَ الْحَدِيثِ لِيُضِلَّ عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَيَتَّخِذَهَا هُزُوًا أُولَٰئِكَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ مُّهِينٌ

And of mankind is he who purchases idle talks (i.e. music, singing, etc.) to mislead (men) from the Path of Allah without knowledge, and takes it (the Path of Allah, the Verses of the Quran) by way of mockery. For such there will be a humiliating torment (in the Hell-fire).
(English – Mohsin Khan)

(2) profession of Music and its punishment for them

It was narrated from Abu Malik Ash’ari that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

“People among my nation will drink wine, calling it by another name, and musical instruments will be played for them and singing girls (will sing for them). Allah will cause the earth to swallow them up, and will turn them into monkeys and pigs.”

Hasan (Darussalam)

reference : Sunan Ibn Majah 4020

(3) Now, finally profession of acting or an actor. As acting includes singing, music, dancing, looking & touching non-maharams (sometimes adult scenes) and it includes many other activities which ALLAAH highly hates and punish for that

It is better and best for our Muslim brethren do not like or love or admire them because whenever they do the above mentioned activities like singing, listening music or watching movies of these actors which includes all evil actions which increases the anger of ALLAAH. But if someone still persists then this will happen to you

Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “When the believer commits sin, a black spot appears on his heart. If he repents and gives up that sin and seeks forgiveness, his heart will be polished. But if (the sin) increases, (the black spot) increases. That is the raan which Allaah mentions in His Book: ‘Nay! But on their hearts is the Raan (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to earn’ [al-Mutaffifeen 83:14].”

Reference : al-Tirmidhi (3334) and Ibn Maajah (4244); classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.

How can someone asks ALLAAH’s blessing to him who does what ALLAAH hates. This is not befitting for Muslim to do such.

we ask ALLAAH to guide our Muslim brethren


ALLAAH  knoweth best
