Playing air hockey

Q: Is playing air hockey halaal?

A: Muslims are not born to waste their time in frivolous activities and things that have no real value. These types of things are for animals and kuffaar. They have no genuine goals and objectives in life. Hence, their time and energies are wasted in these types of things. We should not be comparing ourselves with kaafirs and animals and thinking that why we cannot be enjoying as they enjoy. We have a higher goal which is Jannat. There is just one opportunity. Make the best of it to reach Jannat with ease and respect.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
