  • Is this hadith make it haraam? it doesn't say never use these. It says, if you do this, this will be consequence. If you have pictures in your house, angels do not enter your house. – nim Jan 29 '16 at 7:38

Some pictures have specific copyright for author. For example pictures from this reference has public copyright issue and you have not ask owner for privileges.

Using pictures that are free source has no problem. Islam is compatible with modern world then leave these ideas and use your creativity and intelligent to make as best work as you can.

These ideas only make Muslims weak and useless in modern world as we see today!!

PS : If your photo doesn't violent por_no_graph and Copyright law then you are allowed.

  • Yeah, tis an important point as you said "Some pictures have specific copyright for author". I likewise add: (not haram pictures such ... haram scenes...). Thanks for logical answer dear HOPE. – اللهم صل علی محمد و آل محمد Jan 27 '16 at 6:56

The art of drawing the animate beings if the three-dimensional haram unanimously. Who transfer this consensus is "Nawawi".

If hand painting on panels, walls, clothes, etc., it is also forbidden by the majority of "Oulama":

Saying peace be upon him: "Those who make images punished on the Day of Resurrection, it is said to them: Bring to life what you have created." Narrated by Muslim from Ibn 'Umar.

Muslim narrated as well as Saeed Bin Abu Hassan said: A man came to Ibn Abbas said: I am a man drawing these images, he said to him: come closer to me, he did, and then said: come closer to me, he did until he put his hand on his head, he said, : i tell you what I heard from the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him? I heard the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him says: "Every photographer in the hell, makes him all the image forms a breath, Freshen up him in hell". And in the Sahih Bukhari, he said to him: "Woe, if you refuse but to do so, then do it with this trees, everything without spirit."

This shows the permission to draw all that is empty of spirit like trees, stone, and rivers
