Animation software

Sep 18, 2021 | Business & Trade


I know animation of living thing isn’t allowed. I want to animate sceneries and trees buildings etc. There’s a software named unreal engine 5. Can I use it? Because it has a marketplace where people sells objects like doors trees etc for animation. I will need them but they also sell stuff like churches, crosses, human animation etc. Is it haram to use this software and buy objects like buildings trees from there? Every animation software is like it as far as I know. Thanks.


If you are only purchasing and using animations which are permissible from an Islamic perspective then there will be no harm in utilising that software even if they sell unlawful animations. You must ensure that you do not purchase, create or add any animate objects like people or animals when using this program and creating different sceneries.
