Q: What is
the ruling on putting images of humans or animals in a Masjid (mosque)? Is it permissible to offer Salah (Prayer) in that Masjid? Is it permissible to offer Salah while wearing clothes with images of humans or animals on them? Is it permissible to decorate classrooms or bedrooms with images of humans or animals?
(Part No. 6; Page No. 252)
It is forbidden to decorate Masjids with images of humans or animals. Images that are nailed on the walls of Masjids must be removed. Salah offered at such Masjids is valid, but a person should avoid praying right in front of these images. The sin is on the person who puts these images as well as one who is capable of removing them but refuses to do so.If a person offers Salah while wearing clothes with human or animal drawings, their Salah is valid, although it is disliked. It is not permissible to decorate classrooms or bedrooms or other rooms with images of humans or animals.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
