Watching TV

Q. is it permissible to watch T.V. in order to stay abreast of the news and achieve valuable knowledge from channels like discovery, national geographic, animal planet, and cartoon?

باسمه تعالى

A. Though the television is still a controversial issue amongst Ulama, its evil effect on society, culture and religion are unquestionable. Generally this instrument is used for wrong and unlawful purposes. Thus, it causes more harms than benefits. Therefore, considering these aspects and all other evils counted by Ulama such as looking at non-Mahram, watching naked women and other similar sins and vices, it is highly recommended to avoid television fully and use least harmful means to stay abreast of the news and achieve valuable knowledge.   

And Allah knows best.
