  • Driving a motorcycle for fun

    Is driving a motorcycle as a hobby/pass-time haram? I know it is permissible to drive it as a form of transportation, but what is the ruling if you want to drive it for fun?

    Especially if you're going high speeds (in a controlled environment). Isn't it too risky?

    I don't think it is equivalent to the riding of a horse for fun, because there is an actual benefit from the experience you gain from riding from the horse as well as it being a sunnah.

    Please try not to be BIAS, and give me your honest opinion inshallah.

    This is not a fatwa by any stretch but im just thinking on what basis would it be haram ?

    A Clear cut Quran/Hadith evidence? Not that i know of

    Danger to life ? Thats subjective, depends on rider/conditions

    A Waste of Money? (Its not a cheap hobby but then most serious hobbies are not cheap) and im not sure how
    that would lead to a general prohibition since some rich Muslims own Sportscars, Helicopters, Jets and all these
    things have element of danger in them.

    If i remember correct, if something (halal) is distracting you from Fard it could be haram (for you) and distracting from Wajib it could be Mukhrooh (for you) and
    Allah knows best,

      In no case, it is not a haram to drive a motorbike as a hobby, man. Why would you think so? There are so many reasons that proof, driving a motorcycle is a great pass-time: Motorbike riding makes you look and feel cool and good, It can boost your overall well-being and health, It is a cost-effective means of transport, It helps you interact with numerous different individuals, Motorbike riding affords you a unique sense of freedom. So that is why I have recently ordered a motorbike and am waiting for it's shipping from Atlanta to Denver via

        When motorcycles go at very fast speeds such as 80 -100 mph they can flip over very easily and throw the driver off the motorcycle which will result most likely
        in severe bodily damage or even death.

          Salaam dudes. Some people just shouldnt get on a bike. its not for everyone, or the faint hearted. With that said its one of the best hobbies out there. i frequent the race track and the road, been doing it 24 years. It feels like putting an ironman suit. :) stay safe out there inshallah.
