Is it allowed for me to prank people?
And the last last allama rasulillah. So I know that prank videos are really, really popular online on YouTube. They're viewed millions and millions of times. What I hope you know also is that the vast majority of these very popular prank videos are staged even the audience is staged. Right And so, a couple of things with regards to if I'm if I'm, if I want to prank somebody to make sure that you avoid number one, because it's hard to say that something is hot, but what I will tell you is that you should definitely avoid these attributes. Number one, you should avoid lying the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said I'm a guarantee or have a house in paradise for whoever leaves lying even if
they're joking, right. So number one, recognizing that it being a joke is not an excuse to lie number two, that a person avoids scaring a person because it's not allowed to scare a believer. So number two, no snarling or scaring or invoking fear. Number three, is to avoid anything that will create animosity, right and a lot of times that happens where people do a prank, they prank somebody. And thinking that it's all gonna be in good fun and it creates a fight or it creates animosity that lasts for years or months or even if it's days or hours. It's still not advisable and a loss of dynamism.
