The Jamia Ashrafia has declared TikTok and snack videos to be haram

The use of ‘TikTok’ and ‘Snack videos’ has been declared ‘Haram’ [prohibited] by Jamia Ashrafia, a well-known religious seminary in the provincial capital. Jamia Ashrafia also issued a Fatwa [decree] declaring that creating and disseminating material for these apps is haram.

“The things that do damage to trust [Iman] are the poor videos on TikTok and Snack video. As a result, they should create material and share it with others,” the Fatwa stated.

“The world is developing, has reached the summit, but our youths are slipping down and down by utilising these applications,” Mufti Zakria told a local television station.

“There is an urgent need to raise awareness among parents so that their children do not use these devices,” he continued.

In response to another inquiry, Mufti Zakria stated that using these apps was not acceptable under Sharia law, even if the content was not so obscene.

“Even on achievable things or acts, there is a comprehensive view. If there is any risk of someone crossing the line, no permission is given even on the permissible behaviours and items under Sharia law,” he explained.

Pakistan Telecommunications banned the usage of TikTok a few months ago due to the Chinese app’s reckless and filthy content. The identical app was previously blocked by the Peshawar High Court, but it was eventually reinstated after assurances from PTA officials and other appropriate authorities.

PTA has previously stated that if these apps continued to transmit “vulgar content,” they would face the possibility of being permanently banned.
