There is some disheartening news for Muslim children from the Darul Uloom, Deoband. The world renowned Islamic seminary has ruled that watching cartoons on television is wrongful as per the Shariat (Islamic law). The edict has come in for severe criticism from Muslim clerics who have dubbed it as “impracticable” and “misleading”. The Darul Uloom had earlier issued a fatwa against Muslims watching TV calling the device haraam (sinful).
In an answer to a question posted on the Darul Ifta website from Pakistan, the muftis have ruled that since cartoons are “live pictures”, watching them is not acceptable under Islam.
Senior mufti Arif Qasmi said making pictures and keeping them at home was najayaz (illegitimate or wrongful).
