Ask an Alim

Please Do surahs [An-Nisaa 4:140]. [Al An’aam 6:68]. and [Al-Furqan 25:72] also apply to imagining and recalling wrong and false beliefs? your question title here..

Q:

Assalamualaikum we rahmatullahi we barakatuhu. It is not permissible to sit with, or watch and listen to, those who are establishing disbeliefs or wrong and false beliefs.[An-Nisaa 4:140]. [Al An’aam 6:68]. and [Al-Furqan 25:72]

But my question is: Does this principle also apply to Imagining and recalling wrong and false beliefs like : ?

Example: I can imagine someone prostrating to an idol even though I hate it in my heart as action but I remember in my mind a Hindu in Al Jazeera prostrating to an idol and I keep my mind unnecessary to that image. Or I can keep my mind imagining the sayings of a christian tv channel where he says all those wrong things about Isa Ibn Maryam.

A:

In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.
Wa-Alaykum Assalam Wa Rahmtu-Allah,

There is no problem in recalling such events in your mind… no sin is being committed.
