  • 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,
