Pictures inside books

Q 4: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, Angels do not enter a house in which there is a picture, a statue or a dog. Does this Hadith include the pictures inside books, even if there is no picture on the cover?

A: Yes, it is included in the general meaning of the Hadith even if the picture is not on the cover. On the other hand, if the face is effaced or removed, then it is not included in the Hadith.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
