    Question: Can we play cards(Taash)just for fun or entertainment means without making any money from it? is it Halal or Haram?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 894/496/D=1432) Playing cards (tash) is makrooh since one gets so much involved in it which causes indifference towards salah and laziness in religious matters. But, it will be haram if played with betting money: قال فی رد المحتار: کرہ تحریما اللعب بالنرد وکذا الشطرنج ۔۔۔ وکرہ کل لھو ای لعب وعبث (شامی 9:565)
