A Hadith Regarding Sports

In a lengthy Hadith narrated by `Uqbah ibn Aamir (Radhiallaahu Anhu), Nabi
(Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) is reported to have said, 'Every Lahw
(amusements, pastimes, games, etc.) a man involves himself in is in vain
except practice of archery with his bow, teaching (breaking, training, etc.)
his horse and playing with his wife. (Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, Abu Dawud,
Daarimi; Mishkaat vol.1 pg.332; Qadeemi)

In another Hadith recorded by Tabrani (RA), narrated by Hadhrat Jabir
(Radhiallaahu Anhu) who reports of Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) to
have said, 'Everything devoid of the remembrance of Allah Ta'ala is Lahw
save four actions; a) Walking between 2 targets (while practicing archery),
b) Training or disciplining of one's horse, c) Amusing oneself with the
company of one's wife, d) Learning of the art of swimming. (Targheeb Wa
Tarheeb vol.2 pg.389; Dar Ihya al-Turaath)
