    Is it lawful to play chess?

    Answer By Ustadh Haroon Hanif

    Playing chess is severely offensive and should be avoided. If money is involved whilst playing chess, it would undoubtedly be considered prohibited. In fact, all forms of games and entertainment that have no element of physical training with it should be avoided since the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, forbade all types of pointless entertainment.
