Fatwa on Yoga

Quote from The Star, Sunday 23rd November 2008.

PUTRAJAYA: The National Fatwa council has declared that the yoga practice which involves three elements of physical movements, worshipping and chanting as haram (prohibited) in Islam.

Its chairman Datuk Dr Abdul Shukor Husin said although merely doing the physical movements of yoga minus the worshipping and chanting might not be wrong in the eyes of the religion, it should be avoided as “doing one would lead to another”."

Kesimpulan secara simple:
1. Yoga with chanting and worshipping = Haram = Prohibited
2. Yoga without chanting and worshipping = Commercial Yoga = not Haram, but should be avoided

Sekian... Harap Maklum...
