Title: Saying “bloody hell”

Question

Assalamualikum I heard many Muslime people saying swearing words like bloody hel or F hell what’s your opinion on this please جزاك الله خير

Answer

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The words bloody hell is an expression of anger and frustration.[1] The f hell is vulgar language. Shariah prohibits us from being vulgar.[2] Consider the following hadith;

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: لَيْسَ الْمُؤْمِنُ بِالطَّعَّانِ وَلاَ اللَّعَّانِ وَلاَ الفَاحِشِ وَلاَ البَذِيءِ.

“A true believer does not insult the honor of others, nor curse, nor commit immoral acts, nor is he foul.” [Tirmithi][3]

And Allah Ta‘āla Knows Best

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى الأَزْدِيُّ البَصْرِيُّ، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ سَابِقٍ، عَنْ إِسْرَائِيلَ، عَنِ الأَعْمَشِ، عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، عَنْ عَلْقَمَةَ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: لَيْسَ الْمُؤْمِنُ بِالطَّعَّانِ وَلاَ اللَّعَّانِ وَلاَ الفَاحِشِ وَلاَ البَذِيءِ.
