Question:

My son travels abroad to attend football (soccer) matches in the lands of the unbelievers; what is your advice for me and for him regarding this matter?

Shaykh Salih Fawzan:

[My advice] is that he is to have Taqwa of Allah and not to follow this game that has no benefit, rather it is harmful, and that he not travel for its sake to the lands of the unbelievers.

Firstly [football] is useless. and secondly, travelling to the lands of the unbelievers is not permitted except for a necessity, for medical treatment, to learn something special only they have and which we need, or for trade, this is alright.
