GAMBLING IS EVIL STAY AWAY FROM IT PLEASE
Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.
Gambling means to give or take money or goods depending on something that is not known how it will end. No matter what the name is, any game or bet that has this property and that is played in return for money or goods is called gambling in Shariah.
“O ye who believe! Intoxicants (Alcohol) and gambling, (dedication of) stones, and (divination by) arrows, are an abomination of Satan’s handiwork: eschew such (abomination), that ye may prosper. Satan’s plan is (but) to excite enmity and hatred between you, with intoxicants and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of ALLAH, and from prayer (al-Maida, 5/90, 91.
There is no difference between alcohol and gambling in terms of being forbidden and being a sin. ALLAH renders them haram in the same verse above so please stop the football betting and all sort of betting and Lottery if indeed you are a Muslim.
If we want to prosper, we should not go near those things says ALLAH so my question is, are you doubting ALLAH and think you will prosper? No chance in a billion so please stop and rely on ALLAH through hard work.
*_May ALLAH, AR-RAZZAAQ, The ONE who creates all means of nourishment and sustenance protect us from any satanic traps_*. Aameen.
