Is the Immersive experience like Hauntu considered halal activities or haram? Let us explain.

When most Muslims go looking for what to eat, most will focus not only on whether the food is tasty or the ratings but also for halal restaurants to know if the food is “halal” or safe and clean to eat for Muslims.

Hauntu Immersive experience is only a fictional activity

Understandably, when you go through Hauntu, you may bluff at even thinking this haunted house attraction can be called “halal”. With ghosts, a massacre, a ritual and a cult, how is this even close to being “halal”? Do not worry, however, as you should know that all our rituals, cults and spirits are only fictional. All the elements of Hauntu have been taken from the works of fiction and stories and do not bear any resemblance to living creatures, deities or items. If you are worried that the rituals conducted in Hauntu may be linked to “syirik”, you can trust us as this is not true and that the ritual itself is made without any connection to any real life rituals. Just like halal restaurants, there’s nothing here that you should worry about!

If the fictional story and zero connection to real life occurrences isn’t enough, how about the fact that Hauntu as an immersive experience doesn’t contain any elements of drinking or partying? Unlike activities that take place in illicit nightclubs that involve numerous activities that can be considered unethical such as alcohol drinking, over partying and maybe even illegal drug use, you can rest easy as Hauntu allows you to have fun without any of these elements. In fact, we’ve stated very clearly in our clause that those who are under the influence of alcohol, for example, are not allowed to enter the experience. Thus, Hauntu is a very solid option that allows people to have fun without potentially injuring themselves. Well, except when you’re running from one ghostly character name "Sarimah", that is…
