(I don't want to sound like a racist)As majority of the gamer in this country are Muslims, I thought it would be a good thing if I opend this little thread.
As Muslims we all know that listening to music(except which are permissible), is Haram. Watching any movie with inappropriate content is Haram. And a game is contained with both.
I used to play all kinds of games, out of ignorance. But this year I am trying to get all the benefits out of Ramadan, and in the process be a good Muslim.
Playing games is Haram in another sense that it kills your time for no purpose(our purpose is only to serve ALLAH), it distract you from the real world. But it is ok to play games as long as it doesn't come between ALLAH and you. Whenever its time for Namaz, stop playing and start praying, and you should be fine.
These are the few things you should do while playing games, not only during Ramadan but all the time. But even I find them hard to follow, anyway :-
1. Always turn off music, only keep the effect and voice on.
2. Don't play while Azan, and go for Namaz immediately.
3. Don't play games with inappropriate content(female with revealing cloths, sexual content, too much violence, games which offence you Religion, etc)
4. Prefer always the games free from any religious and political elements.
5. Always prefer the games where Haram things do not overweight permissible things.
I am sorry and may ALLAH forgive me if I am wrong in anyway.
I wold personally recommend to stick with cod,css and car racing games only.
