The ruling in participating in betting in sports matches

 

Question: Is it permitted to participate in betting in sports contests such as horse racing?

 

Answer: Betting itself is forbidden and has no justification in doing so just to be able to help those who are poor because there’s no obedience for Allah The Exalted when the actual act itself is forbidding, so the ends doesn’t justify the means.
