Islam and the Quran

Is Developing Computer Games Lawful?

While making a judgment on a matter, the following principle is observed:

‘Permissibility is the original state of things (al-Asl fi alAshya al-Ibaha).’

What may cause game development to be forbidden would be inclusion of elements that are forbidden or disliked in Islam.

According to this, developing games which DO NOT include elements of gambling, speculations, eroticism or violence, and which may help the improvement of the gamers from different aspects is permissible.
