Q: I have young children and as a part of teaching them number and colour recognition one of the easy ways to do this is by allowing them to play the card game Uno. The cards do not resemble regular playing cards that are used in gambling/poker nor do they have animate pictures. Would it be permissible to allow them to play such a game?
A: In principle, playing the game in reference is permissible as long as it does not make one negligent of fulfilling one's responsibilities, performing Salah at its appointed time in Jamaat.
And Allah Knows Best
