Cosplay haram

Cosplay once again comes under scrutiny, with the Wilayah Persekutuan Mufti, Datuk Dr. Zulkifli Mohamad al-Bakri declaring that the hobby is haram, especially if it shows off the aurat or resembles another religion’s deity, fictional or otherwise.

Aside from stating that “wearing a costume with the intent to resemble a character is not allowed” Datuk Dr. Zulkifli Mohamad al-Bakri also adds that if a costume requires a large amount of money to the point it is “wasteful” it is also haram, that the hobby, in general, is a waste of time and has no benefit.

The statement was made on his recent Facebook entry and it goes into detail about why it is considered haram as well. You can read his entire entry below
