This is the Hadith which you are referring to: Narrated By 'Aisha : (Mother of the faithful believers) I bought a cushion with pictures on it. When Allah's Apostle saw it, he kept standing at the door and did not enter the house. I noticed the sign of disgust on his face, so I said, "O Allah's Apostle! I repent to Allah and H is Apostle. (Please ...

According to many hadiths in Sahih Muslim, it is clearly forbidden, so it is haram. You can see them here. According to Quran, there is no mention about paint, painting or painters. You can search the word "paint" in the same link I gave with any English Translation. Here is the result, nothing. I also checked in the Turkish Translation of Quran, there is ...

Assalamu-alaikum, I think we first need to understand the meaning of hijab ourselves. Without that this question and its answers bears no value. Merely covering dress is not the idea, but more importantly, it is behavior, manners, speech and appearance in public. The idea for men and women is an outer manifestation of an inner commitment to worshipping ...

We are not accountable on how we feel, only on how we act. Experiencing sinful feelings or thinking sinful thoughts does not make it a sin. That is something we have no control over, and thus are not accountable for. Acting out on these thoughts, however, we are accountable for. So back to our hypothetical situation: liking a picture is not haram. It is a ...

I've read a number of fatawa (no references handy) that interpret the prohibition on drawing animate objects to refer to creating physical representations thereof. When the drawing is completely ephemeral such as a digital image on a computer, which only exists as a "drawing" when the computer both interprets and displays it as one, it wouldn't fall under ...

To feel grief when someone has died is totally normal and so it is not a sin to feel sad. However there are things which are haram such as mourning out loud, hitting yourself, ripping your clothes and asking "why?" because then you are questioning Allah's will. Prophet Muhammad, Peace be upon him, who said: «It is prohibited for a woman who believes in ...

It depends on if what you draw is used as objects of worship by other religions or not. Also depends on which scholar or Marja you follow for Islamic laws. It is forbidden to make a complete statue or sculpture of a living being. However, there is no problem in buying or selling pictures of such statues or sculptures, even though it is Makrooh. ...

As stated in my answer to the similar question above: ...........However, the Prophet did allow the drawing of inanimate objects such as trees and rocks -- anything which does not possess a soul. Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying: "Every painter will go to Hell, and for every ...

In Sahih Muslim bi Sharh al-Nawawi 14/84 (Arabic only) by An-Nawawi, in his commentary on the hadith in Sahih Muslim 37/130, he said that the angels that do not enter the room are the angels that roam around supplicating for the virtuous with mercy, blessings, and forgiveness (Arabic: وأما هؤلاء الملائكة الذين لايدخلون بيتا فيه كلب أو صورة فهم ملائكة يطوفون ...

For reference, here's the Firefox logo: Even stricter scholars don't include "incomplete images" as haram, e.g., Islam Q&A wrote: It seems that images which do not have complete features, which do not have a nose or eyes, are not included under the heading of haraam images, and the ones who make them are not included in this warning, because they ...

Bismillah Some says it's forbidden to show images of living creatures. The argument is this hadith: Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him), who said, “I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: ‘Whoever makes an image in this world will be told to breathe the soul into it on the Day of Resurrection, and he will ...

No it, is not ok to draw living creatures just for art or for any other reasons, as it has been narrated in it's forbidden. But if you want to or must draw art, then you can draw like trees or the sky or rocks or buildings etc, as long it is not creature like human or animal. كل مصور في النار يجعل له بكل صورة صورها نفس فيعذبه في جهنم‏"‏ قال ابن عباس‏:...

As far as I am aware, there aren't any explicit hadith which differentiate between images of a Prophet and other images. There are a spectrum of views on the topic and its perhaps more of a cultural taboo (or at best a matter of Taqwah) rather than a religious doctrine. Drawing a Prophet is first of all considered a seed for idolatry and shirk, its thought ...

IslamWeb IslamWeb declare that hentai is prohibited. They write: It is not permissible to see or keep pornographic cartoon pictures for several reasons: Firstly, the Prophet forbade image making (sculpturing and taking pictures) of living creatures and urged us to erase and destroy them. Secondly, pornographic cartoon pictures, even if they ...

The objective of the following is not to answer your question; rather, to show why it is difficult to give a precise answer. The Islam Q&A Fatwa 256888 stipulates that using money with depictions of rulers is not the users' fault. Someone is obviously at fault, but scholars refrain from point out who for reasons related to what is termed as public ...

It would be only some angels not all for we know there are endless number of angels governing different processes in the world. There are angels for sun, rain, clouds, plants and humans, performing different functions, so if pictures had the effect of suddenly expelling all angels, then we would have to conclude that an art gallery of human portraits must ...

I dont think there is something like that , and your aim is not creating something you just trying to make a game so I dont think it is a problem unless you have chracters which are likely to push someone to sex or bad things you know like women chracters with decollete dress

The ruling of a picture that has a soul like a human or animal is haram, but if it is a picture of a object that has no soul, like a tree or rock, than it is considered OK. While I was with Ibn Abbas a man came and said, "O father of Abbas! My sustenance is from my manual profession and I make these pictures." Ibn `Abbas said, "I will tell you only ...

According to the view of Shi'a: Definitely, it is haram (prohibited) for girls to put their photos on the internet without hijab (veil).So when Allah has said it is Haram for females if any man (except Mahrams) see their hairs, as a result we understand that it is absolutely Haram.. Well, Haram is Haram, there is not any difference between "internet or ...

The image that should erase everything that was in the image of a human being or an animal, it must obliterate her face only, and enough blur her face for the rest of her body, while the images of trees, stones, mountains, sun, moon, and stars, and so on, this is not okay, and should not be smudge. the image of an eye only or face only: this is not the thing,...

It is how our brain functions. We can't think or talk about something without having an image of that (here Allah). You should try to avoid imagining but if you fail, it's fine and of course not sinful.

According at Islamic Sharia it's not permissible to hang pictures of people or animals in house. The prophet PBUH says: Angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture. .‏ لاَ تَدْخُلُ الْمَلاَئِكَةُ بَيْتًا فِيهِ كَلْبٌ وَلاَ صُورَة Narrated by AlBukhary We should erase everything that was in the image of a human or an animal ...

The general rule is that whatever sight, situation and action that risk you falling into sin must be avoided. And sin includes lustful glances or looks at women whether in person, drawn or filmed.

You are right, general ruling is not to draw or take picture of living beings. But in case of animated film, it is allowed if it is being in specific Islamic limits. As you said kissing scenes are there, so that's definitely a NO. Animations should not have any sort of nudity, mixing girls and boys openly or music in it. other than that it is allowed. For ...

First of all i would say what counts in any matter is the intention. Then when it comes to drawings and pictures etc. i think our dear brother @American-Muslim gave you a few helpful links and an answer, but i'd like to explain my Point of View: My opinion is that one must take some facts in account for example still when our Messenger died there were ...

Man or woman, you shouldn't post your pictures online where they are always available to see for anyone who chooses to at will. This applies to profile pictures in apps like facebook, twitter, whatsapp too. Remember purdah is equally important for a man too. Islam doesn't differentiate between sexes when it comes to modesty. The Glorious Quraan: Surah An-...

Assalaamu alaikum warehmatullahi wabarakatuhu, In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful There seems to be two issues, but regarding your issue:- Abû Talhah relates that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “The angels do not enter a house wherein there is a dog or images representing (people or animals).” [Sahîh al-Bukhârî (3225) and ...

Storing her picture on your phone is ok. What is NOT okay is that you hang a photo on the wall. No, crying about her won't count a sin for her as long as she didn't tell you to be sad about her death or anything similar. The Prophet PBUH himself teared when his son Al Kasim died as an infant.

Yes, it is permissible. The face of both the horse and the rider is unclear in this logo. Ibn Abbaas (RA) said: "The image is the head. So if the head is cut off, it is no longer an image." -- Source Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen said: "If the image is not clear – that is, it does not have eyes, a nose, a mouth or fingers – then this is not a complete ...
