Commemorative photos

Q 2: Is it permissible for a Muslim to take commemorative photos? A: It is not permissible to take any commemorative photos of people as (Part No. 1; Page No. 290


A: It is not permissible to take any commemorative photos of people as (Part No. 1; Page No. 290) we have been strongly warned about carrying out Taswir (painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography). The Prophet (peace be upon him) said that the angels do not enter the house in which a dog or pictures are found, and he gave his order to get rid of pictures as being a kind of glorification of those pictures. This is considered one of the means of Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship). However, if the pictures are humiliated as to be found on a carpet or a rug to step or sit on, there would be no sin as the reason of forbiddance is not present.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
