Playing Chess
What is the Islamic ruling on playing chess?

Although there are many hadiths that criticize and forbid the game backgammon, there is only one hadith against the game chess, and it does not even reside in saheeh hadith books. Chess is a game which exercises both sides of the brain, improves strategic thinking and problem solving skills, teaches planning and foresight. As long as it is NOT used as an instrument to betting or any other type of gambling, playing chess is obviously permissible.
