Using Sites or Programs that Have Bad Advertisements
Fatwa No: 462169

Question

In windows 11 store Microsoft has included movies to the store as soon as u open the store several movies comeup even without searching on the home page and they also added a category for them as we all know these movies have all sorts of title names and pictures which could be disrespecting to the relegion and also the content inside the movie can be disrespectful to relegion so is using other parts of windows 11 other than store or the previous versions of windows which dont have movies in store are haram to use because it is supporting them in their evil purpose of promoting such movies.

Answer

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  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

We don’t see any Islamic impediment that prevents from using the operating program in question. Indeed, these advertisements and the like almost exist in every website and operating programs. It is unfortunately a general affliction and if we were to forbid people from using these sites or programs due to the appearance of these advertisements, this would be some kind of imposing restrictions and causing hardship upon the people.

Therefore, a Muslim is allowed to use these programs, but he should turn his eyes away from those advertisements.

Allah knows best.
