Watching Television

Sayyidi wa sanadi Shaykh Mufti Mohammad Taqi Usmani (Allah preserve him) said in reply to a question about watching television,

‘Contemporary television (programs) are a composite of multiple sins. Almost all of the programs are such that by watching them one indulges in any of these sins. Therefore, it is impermissible to keep a television set at home. I consider it (watching TV) to be inappropriate’
