What is the ruling when head of the family allows his family to watch inappropriate films? The Grand Ayatollah Sistani’s answer

SHAFAQNA – The Grand Ayatollah Sistani answered a question about watching inappropriate films and the responsibility of the head of family in this regard.

Question: Currently some Arabic serials are being broadcast in Iraqi television where the cover of the women actors are against religious rules and even immoral to the limit of semi naked. What is the ruling on watching these serials for the viewer (male or female), and what is the ruling when the head of family allows his family to watch them?

The Grand Ayatollah Sistani: Watching these pictures with lustful desires or fear of committing sins, is Haram; rather to be cautious, must avoid watching them even without lustful desires or fear of committing sins. And it is the duty of believers to be cautious and avoid watching whatever is being broadcast in television or satellite channels, and especially the parents must be careful, because it is their duty to choose a thing which is beneficial for their children in this world and the hereafter, and protect them from whatever corrupts their pure nature or morality, Wala Houla Wala Qowata Ela Bellah (there is no force or ability except from Allah (SWT)).
