My Dears,

A few years back I had an interesting conversation with the mother of a Christian homeschooling family who did not allow electronic media in their home. This included but was not limited to television. Both she and her husband were in agreement about protecting the family from this type of influence. It is always refreshing to meet a total stranger and just click, especially on issues of parenting and family.

One day, inshaAllah, you too will be mothers. Before that happens, consider what influences you will deliberately subject your child to once he/she is here.

Furthermore, discussing and reaching a consensus on parenting issues before agreeing to a marriage can help prevent marital discord later on. It will also help you and your husband to present a unified front to young ones who often look for weaknesses in the parental armor.

The Permanent Committee of Scholars have stated (in a fatwa) that the television is an instrument that in and of itself has no ruling regarding it; rather, the ruling applies to its use.
