Question

There is a new game on the Internet which
IMO is very questionable as it seems to be
based on Islamic culture and history but it
actually has a very strange name (THE 99)
and very controversial names of characters.
It is basically about a legend that the
Mongols when they sacked Baghdad, they
razed the largest library in the city and threw
the books into the Tigris River, which ran
black with ink. But the caliphate guardians,
in a desperate attempt to save the vast
knowledge of the library before it was
destroyed, concocted an alchemical solution
that would absorb the contents of the books.
They instilled this information into ninety-
nine gemstones, which supposedly contain
the lost knowledge of the Library of
Baghdad. Under great duress, they smuggled
the Noor Stones out of Baghdad, taking
them to Andalusia, where they were used as
the centerpiece for a great, hidden, Fortress
of Knowledge.Then the fortress was distroyed
and the gemstones were removed from it,
scattered to the four corners of the world.
Dr. Ramzi Razem, the leader and mentor of
the game, believes the legend, including the
idea that the stones activate superpowers
within certain people. He directs the quest to
find the lost Noor Stones of Baghdad and
although possessing no superpowers of his
own, he helps other characters to use theirs.
The team features 99 characters from 99
different countries and each character's
powers reflect one of the traditional 99
attributes of Allah. These characters find
themselves transformed from ordinary
human beings into superpowered heroes.
Some of these characters have Names of
Allah (Subhanhu wa Taala) like Noora, Jabbar,
Mumita, Jami, Fatah, Darr, Raqib, Hadya,
Bari, Baeth etc. Please let me know the
ruling on this game to let its authors know
that it is Haram and to warn people against
it if it is so.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

After seeing the game which you mentioned
in the question and browsing through its site,
and after reading some of what is mentioned
about it in the site itself, it became clear to
us that it is not permissible to play this game
because it contains disbelief, false beliefs,
and humiliation to the Names and Attributes
of Allah. In this game we find each member
of the 99 group impersonating one of the
Names of Allah and claiming that he/she acts
according to the implication of that Name,
or reflects it. We also find naming the males
and females in that group with those noble
Names. These matters are undoubtedly clear
carelessness and mockery of the noble
Names of Allah. Moreover, resembling Allah
to his creation is clear disbelief in Allah and
it is practicing deviation concerning His
Names and Attributes; Allah Says (what
means): {And (all) the Most Beautiful Names
belong to Allah, so call on Him by them, and
leave [the company of] those who practice
deviation concerning His names. They will be
recompensed for what they have been
doing.} [Quran 7:180]
Indeed, there is no greater recklessness and
mockery than naming a disabled person with
the Name Daar (reflecting the name of Allah
Ad-Daar; The One Who causes harm) and
naming a female who is dressed immorally
with the name of Noora (reflecting the name
of Allah An-Noor; The Light), and naming a
fourth person with a silly and absurd
appearance with the name Jabbar (reflecting
the name of Allah Al-Jabbar; The Almighty).
Similarly, claiming that the stones which they
named ‘Noor stones’ (i.e. the stones of light)
activate superpowers within certain people is
shirk (associating partners with Allah) and
it is a clear misguidance. This is so because
stones neither benefit nor harm, and they
can neither grant nor deprive people from
anything.

This game inculcates wrong beliefs in the
minds and hearts of the children, and it
degrades the Names and Attributes of Allah,
and therefore, the owners of this site and
those who run it should repent to
Allah, withdraw it from the market and must
avoid being the reason behind spoiling
people’s creed. They should have asked the
scholars about this game before designing
and publishing it. We ask Allah to guide them
and set right their affairs.

Allah Knows best.
