    You do't know your own religion very well, do you?

    Abu Dawood (4938) narrated from Abu Moosa al-Ash’ari that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever plays dice has disobeyed Allaah and His Messenger.” (Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood, 4129)
    Ibn Qudaamah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: “Chess is like dice in that it is forbidden.” (al-Mughni, 14/155)
    Sahih Muslim Hadith 5612 Narrated by Buraydah ibn al-Hasib Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) said: "He who played chess is like one who dyed his hand with the flesh and blood of swine"

    It was narrated that ‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib (may Allaah be pleased with him) passed by some people who were playing chess. He said, “What are these images, to which you are devoted? [cf. al-Anbiya’ 21:52]” Imaam Ahmad said: “The soundest comment on chess what that which was said by ‘Ali (may Allaah be pleased with him).”

    ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) was asked about chess and he said, “It is worse than dice."

    And chess appears to have been invented in India, well before Islam. Nice try.
    very informative !

    Saudi Arabia’s grand mufti has ruled that chess is forbidden
    Ha ha. What's the betting he just got ripped to pieces in some chess game with the Russian ambassador and he chucked the pieces on the floor in a tantrum and declared "it's haram"?

    The amount of idiocy in this world, especially within religious communities, is frightening. It seems that anyone can justify just about about anything in Islam.

    a cause for hatred and enmity between players”.

    Yes, damn chess and its incitement of hatred and enmity between the different sects. Caused so much bloodshed...
    And saudi even refuses to comment on IS. Probably because they hate shias just as much

    replied that if it makes a person miss praying on time or he plays for money, then it is haraam, otherwise it is makrooh according to al-Shaafa’i and haraam according to others…” (al-Kabaa’ir, 89-90)

    So what things can legitimately make you late to pray and be okay? I don't tend to see Muslim colleagues all disappearing at the exact same time to pray so I assume there is a degree of flexibility?
