Keeping photos as mementos


A: It is not permissible to keep the photos taken as mementos, but they should be wiped out, for the Prophet (peace be upon him) said to `Aly (may Allah be pleased with him): Spare no portrait unwiped out, and leave not a high grave unleveled. (Related by Imam Muslim in his Sahih 'authentic' Book of Hadith). As for the pictures found in a book, a magazine, or a newspaper which you need (Part No. 1; Page No. 702) to keep, you could just wipe out and deform them.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
