Pictures on paper money

Q: There are some issues causing me a great deal of anxiety, one of which is the issue of pictures on paper money that we have been afflicted with and which we bring into the Masjids (Mosques) in our pockets. Does our bringing them into the Masjids cause the angels to leave? Would this make it Haram (prohibited) to bring it in?Is it considered among the humiliated things, as menial images do not prevent the angels from entering houses?


A: The pictures on money are not under your control. You have no choice but to own money. (Part No. 1; Page No. 705) Thus, keep it in your house or carry it with you so as to make use of it in buying, selling, presenting gifts, giving charity, paying off debts and other legal purposes; there is no harm even though this money is not menial because of its value. Rather, there is no blame on you due to the necessity imposed.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
