The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.

    Re: Chess in Islam

    عن علي بن أبي طالب رضي الله عنه أنه مَرَّ على قوم يلعبون بالشطرنج فقال : ما هذه التماثييل التي أنتم لها عاكفون
    It was narrated that ‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib (may Allaah be pleased with him) passed by some people who were playing chess. He said, “What are these images, to which you are devoted? [cf. al-Anbiya’ 21:52]”

    Re: Chess in Islam

    Asalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu

    There is a difference of opinion brother I avoid it to be safe. I used to enjoy chess before Islam but really it's such a minor thing to give up when you consider the pleasures of jannah Allah has prepared for the pious

    (Note this isn't a fatwa but a comment)

    Re: Chess in Islam

    İ never knew about the prohibition of chess in İslaam at all.
    İn earlier discussions here on İslamicboard some brothers ans sisters pointed out that it was pretty much prohibited. They showed various hadeeth about it...so now i gave that up completely just to be sure.

    Re: Chess in Islam

    If chess is prohibited for its images, then the book I received at my mosque containing illustrations of how to pray must also be prohibited because that also contains images.

    agree, books shouldn't contain images.
