Program berbuka puasa bersama ghodong2 Temerloh Skate kat Skatepark Temerloh. Salam Ramadhan buat semua umat Islam sedunia. GO SKATE! :) - Temerloh Skate facebook

Islam accepts sports and encourages us to engage in them, it does not make them a goal in and of themselves, rather sport is considered to be a means of protecting the sacred limits of Islam and the dignity and rights of the Muslims, in the belief that strength is one of the most important means of achieving victory and prevailing in the face of challenges and warding off the threats that face Islam.

If the purpose of sport is to prepare the body to be fit to carry out the duty of jihad so as to make the word of Allah supreme, then sport is essential. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war…”
[al-Anfaal 8:60]

And the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer.” Narrated by Muslim, 6774.
If the aim is relaxation and maintaining good health, then sport is permissible. If it involves something haraam, such as missing prayers, uncovering any part of the ‘awrah or mixing with women and so on, then it is haram.

Those who engage in bodybuilding (other sports as well) uncover their ‘awrah when practicing this sport, which is undoubtedly haram. The ‘awrah of a man extends from the navel to the knee, and it is not permissible for him to uncover it in front of anyone other than his wife. It is also not permissible for him to look at the ‘awrah of anyone else.

The basic principle concerning this matter is the hadeeth of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him): “What is between the navel and the knee is ‘awrah.” Al-Albaani said in Irwa’ al-Ghaleel, 281; (it is) a hasan hadeeth.

If the sport is free of these haram things, then there is nothing wrong with engaging in it.
