In this Friday sermon, Moosaa Richardson reminds us of Allaah’s severe prohibition of gambling as one of the first and most foundational prohibited matters in Islaam. Obvious and not-so-obvious forms of gambling are cited and warned against, from casinos and lottery tickets, all the way down to amusement park games and insurance.
Recorded at al-Masjid al-Awwal in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (USA) on 1437.01.02.

“O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), and gambling, and Al‑Ansaab (stone altars for sacrifices to idols etc), and Al‑Azlaam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaytaan’s (Satan’s) handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful.
Shaytaan (Satan) wants only to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants (alcoholic drinks) and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allaah and from As‑Salaah (the prayer). So, will you not then abstain?”
