1 - What does islam say on playing video
games for example playstation 2 for like an
hour a day ? 2 - I am a very sexual active
person, and Alxamdullilah I do not commit
fawaahish acts, and I do fast. Is there any
other way to help me control my desires? 3 -
I really do not like to eat too much food, so
I eat litte foods, but my parents especially
my mom always yells at me about eating to
litte and to eat to my fill and I have told her
about what the religion says on eating to
much and the hadiths? WHat should i DO? 4
- How can you find inner peace in a kuffar
country like Canada for example ? When all
around there are Enemies of ALLAH? 6- What
is the best act above all others to waste your
time in ? 7 - What is the best way to make
yourself cry for fear of ALLAH, during
prayers and when you are doing good acts of
obedience ? How do you become the
KHASHIUN that ALLAH mentioned in suratul
MUMINOON in the second ayat? 8- My
family usually backs bites one of my brothers
who lives in Medina, my father and mother
and my sister and brother always talk behind
his back and there is not one of them who
do not know the punishment for this, even
though sometimes when i try to speak out
my father admonishes me emotionally saying
i do not know nothing, I usally tell my self in
my heart that ayat quran (I AM FREE OF
WHAT YOU ARE DOING) but is there any
other ways to help? 9 - I prayed 10 rakats of
Tahajjud last night and I completed one hour
before fajr, and i decided to sleep, but when
I woke up that athan for fajr was almost
done, so i made wudu and prayed the single
rakat of witr, is that correct because I
believed I would wake up before fajr time.

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.

We have already issued many Fataawa about
many issues which you raised in the
question; so we will summarize the answer to
your questions and we will refer you to our
previous Fataawa.

1- Video games are permissible
if they do not include any
prohibition, and playing them –
in this case –for an hour a day
is permissible. However, a
Muslim should endeavour to
use his time in what is
beneficial for him in his
worldly matters as well as in
matters pertaining to the
2- Marriage is the best thing by
which a person keeps himself
chaste, so you should
endeavour to marry. If a
person is not able to marry,
he/she should fast.
3- As long as a Muslim is able
to reside in a Muslim country
where he is safe about himself
and his religion, he should do
so. It might be that he is
obliged to migrate from a non-
Muslim country to a Muslim
country, and it might be that it
is desirable for him to do so
according to his circumstances.
If a Muslim is in necessity or in
a dire need to reside in a non-
Muslim country, he should be
keen on increasing his faith and
obeying his Lord. He should
also keep company with his
Muslim brothers and he should
avoid suspicious places and
avoid befriending dissolute and
disobedient people. By doing
so, one would attain inner
4- Submissiveness in prayer and
in other matters and weeping
out of the fear of Allah can be
achieved by mentioning Allah as
much as possible, being keen
on obeying Him, and refraining
from disobeying him. Among
the matters which help achieve
submissiveness in prayer in
particular is to endeavour to go
to the mosque and sit there
while waiting for the prayer
and being preoccupied by the
mention of Allah and the
recitation of the Quran while
5- You should continue on
advising your parents and your
brothers and sisters about
backbiting your brother, and
you should be kind to them and
advise them in a gentle manner
and supplicate Allah as much as
possible to guide them.
6- Performing only one Rak’ah
Witr prayer is permissible. The
time of Witr prayer starts from
the time after praying ‘Isha
until the beginning of the time
of Fajr; this is something
agreed among the scholars
. However, Ibn Al-
Munthir reported that a
group from among the
righteous predecessors
are of the view that this is the
time one has the choice to pray
Witr during any part of it.

However, the time of necessity
extends until commencing the
Fajr prayer. Therefore, if
someone is prevented from
performing it due to sleep or
forgetfulness, until the time of
Fajr started before he had
prayed the Witr prayer, he may
perform the Witr prayer before
praying Fajr as long as he does
not fear that the prescribed
fixed time of the Fajr prayer is
over. The Prophet said:
"Whoever sleeps through Witr
prayer (and misses to perform
it) or forgets to perform it, he
should perform it as soon as he
wakes up or remembers it. "
[At-Tirmithi and Ibn Maajah]
7- It is an obligation to obey
the parents in what is
permissible and in matters that
do not harm the child.
Therefore, if eating much does
not cause any harm to the child
and what the parents want
from him/her is not more than
what is normal, then he/she
has to obey them in this
regard. However, it should be
mentioned that it is dispraised
to eat much and more than

Allah Knows best.
