Taking a Chance


Are you taking a chance? A new game of chance which is becoming very common and popular is the “Teddy Bear Machine.” Some coins are first deposited into the machine. This activates a mechanical device for a limited time in the machine which the “player” controls  in an attempt to grab a teddy bear from inside. Sometimes he manages to get it and at times he leaves empty handed. This is clearly gambling and therefore haraam.



The rule is that if one pays money for something that depends on a chance, it is gambling. Thus Muslims should strictly refrain from playing such machines or keeping them at their businesses.
