is playing carrom legal in ramdan
All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad , is His Slave and Messenger.
What befits a Muslim, in all his time in general and in Ramadhaan in particular, is to strive in the worship of Allaah The Almighty and to do what benefits him in this World and the Hereafter. It should be known to you, my dear brother, that what is permissible to play at any time other than Ramadhaan is also permissible to play in Ramadhaan, but wasting that noble time in playing is inappropriate.
As for this game in particular, it is unlawful in the sight of some scholars and disliked in the sight of others, and the latter is the opinion we adopt here in Islamweb.
Therefore, it is confirmed then to leave it, to avoid the difference of opinion; and if it is confirmed to leave it at any time other than Ramadhaan, then, it is more confirmed to leave it in Ramadhaan, because it is a noble season in which one should fill his time with the worship of Allaah The Almighty.
Allaah Knows best.
