The Islamic preacher, Dr. Bilal Noureddine, confirmed that the prank programs that spread during the holy month of Ramadan represent a legal problem, adding that they waste time.
And the preacher Nouruddin said – for "Al Jazeera" – The prank programs, and so on, these have a legal problem in origin, before it is a problem in wasting time in Ramadan, and its legal problem is that the Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, says: "Whoever deceives us is not one of us, and cunning and deceit are in the Fire".
He added that the Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace, said "It is not permissible for a Muslim to terrorize a Muslim"And he continued: "If these programs are truthful, then they contain intimidation, and if they are false, then they contain deception, deception, and wasteful spending of money."According to him.
Dr. Bilal pointed out that the large sums of money spent on producing such programmes, which are "Money that is spent on deception, and in ways other than what God Almighty wanted, describing that money is God’s money, and we are in charge of it."While there are other programs that indicate good, and direct money to support Muslims.
Some prank programs allocate huge budgets to host artists, athletes and famous personalities, and put them in frightening or embarrassing situations, to show their reaction to the viewers, and these budgets are estimated at millions of dollars.
Many fatwa authorities in the Arab world had issued fatwas prohibiting such programs, and one of them stated: "The Islamic law forbids terrorizing people, even if it is a joke, because the Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: "Do not intimidate a Muslim, for frightening a Muslim is a great injustice.".
