If praying in a room with pictures is haram (as some scholars say), then is the prayer itself valid?

  • I don't know about those scholars, my guess is that pictures could be hidden idols, and that would be clearly haram. But you are praying to Allah, and not to the pictures. Commented May 12 at 18:34

The presence of such pictures or images does not invalidate the prayer itself, as long as the person is not actively venerating or worshipping them during the prayer.

And Allah knows best!
