Assalam u Alaikum.I wanted to ask that is it ok to watch shows and seasons in which some satanic idea is shown or gods are shown in them.If we don’t believe in them and perform our daily obligations,is it ok if we watch them.Please tell me in terms of is it in realm of absolute prohibition? Or regarded as Minor Shirk?also please give me examples of minor shirk.
The actual prohibition is that of doing Shirk or having shirk as a belief system. However, Movies or Games containing any such motivations or explicit references to Polytheistic Acts should be avoided on sadd-e-zariya principle as constantly watching these things can make a person very lenient about severity of these things and it may lead one to get involved into such acts himself one day, because of lower threshold developed in a person with constant watching such acts. But no fatwa of absolute prohibition can be given in this regard, because absolute prohibitions are very explicitly mentioned in Quran.
There is no such thing as minor Shirk. There is Shirk and then there are kinds of polytheistic attitude (‘Shirkiya Rawaiya’), both are equally prohibited.
Please understand the underlying principle that Ghamidi Sahab is trying to portray here:
