    It was narrated from Mawla 'Ali کرم اللہ وجحہ that the Prophet ﷺ said:

    "The angels do not enter a house in which there is a picture, a dog or a person who is Junub."

    (Sunan Nasai)

    There are many other Ahadith which state the same thing recorded in different books of Hadith.

    In the house in which there are photos, dogs (unless in certain circumstances) and one other,

    Does anyone have the reference for this?

    Probably the latter?

    Lets adjust the question slightly and ask - has any qualified alim e deen ruled in favour of printing and displaying photos?

    I love the fact that he even says 'I'm not even a maulvi'. Refreshing considering the number of superstars we have today.

    I'd have to ask to be honest, but I do know for sure that Madani Miyan (hafidhullah) advises his murids against displaying pictures taken of him in their homes.

    with the easy availability of pictures on the net, they can be misused, whether you give permission or don't.

    then another host of issues crops up, such as: "why is my photo smaller than the other?"

    which brings us back to the debate: why have even digital pictures or videos?
  7. A speaker cannot be blamed if he was not aware of the fact that his picture was going to be used and displayed. If he is asked for a picture and he gives it for that reason then it is wrong.

    the speakers will say, 'it's not our fault the organisers put our photos on'.

    ok, maybe. but then the speaker will have to start telling the organisers at the time of invitation that don't put my photo on. it seems everyone is getting hungrier for fame and glory.

    alas! we had more ulama like shaykh asrar whose name often appears on posters as just 'asrar rashid'. he has more to offer than most of these 'poster molwis' and he still considers himself nothing.

    one could something similar to take care of faces in videos- then i suppose there'll be no problem fiqh-wise, even if one follows the azimat view.

    for instance if all 'islamic' channels did something like this before telecasting that would be great - only thing is you'll not be able to become a 'well-known face' (which may be too much for some people!).


    it would be even more wonderful if someone puts efforts into making glasses that recognize and automatically block every member of the opposite gender - perhaps by replacing them with an unappealing black box or something - that way the wearer will not run into the individual but no need to constantly avert your gaze - especially since uncovered women are all over the place now a days.

    another thing one could do is wear a miniaturized sonar device and walk with eyes shut tight :)
  10. Brother only distasteful or haraam? What is the position of your Shaykh on printing and displaying pictures.

    I follow my shaykh's ruling on video (permitted), but with posters I still feel it's distasteful to put pictures on posters. I feel that you can get around the need for pictures if you design it properly, heck even use a silhouette if you have to.
  12. Unfortunately a growing trend these posters are put up in the masaajid which is even worse. I remember last year in a masjid in Nottingham there was a A1 sized picture of a Deceased Pir Sahib up on the notice board.

    The problem in our times is if you try to remove them or speak against such acts your are labelled as extremists intihaa pasand. When really you should be commended for following the Shariah.

    Knowledge has left us and we are left with greatly exaggerated titles and photos.

    There's a growing trend of putting pictures on posters. So there's a picture of all the guest speakers at a gathering. I'm actually against this as pictures have traditionally been forbidden anyway and the issue of the angels of mercy etc.

    I'm also not for it as for me, it's not the spirit of tasawwuf. Just have the speakers' names, no need to have huge photos too.

    Allah ta'ala knows best.
