Jabhat al-Nusra closes stores with billiards, table football & computer games

From Aymenn al-Tamimi’s fascinating archive of JN administrative documents (Aymenn’s translation):

For the requirements of the interest of the Muslim populace and because preventing corruption is more of an obligation than the acquisition of material benefit, the head of the Dar al-Qaḍa in Hureitan decides on the following:

1. All entertainment stores that feature billiards, table football and computer games are to be closed.

2. The owner of the store is responsible for looking for another form of livelihood for himself legitimate according to Shari’a.

3. All who persist in practising this vocation will expose themselves to judicial reckoning, detention, confiscation of tools, and closing of the shop in keeping with the regulations.

And God is the one behind the intention.
