    Of course shirk is haram in Islam. However, is it permissible to watch movies or play video games that contain elements of Greek or Roman mythology? As far as I know, virtually no one believes these traditions to be anything other than myths.

    I mean my view would be that it is perfectly fine. No one is going to be desensitised to shirk after watching Hercules

      JazakAllah for your answer. I agree with you in that light – having played video games and watched movies loosely based on mythology, I’ve never felt inclined to commit in shirk. At the same time, I vaguely remember a video where Javed Ghamidi was saying that we should not watch (or maybe create?) movies where the protagonist is committing shirk. I’ll try to find the video, but don’t exactly remember it. Still got to watch this video too haha
