Possessing magazines that contain photographs

A : The possession of magazines which contain photographs is permissible, if the possession is for the purpose that they contain useful knowledge. Those who possess them should (Part No. 1; Page No. 692) distort the photographs included with ink or suchlike. If possession is for the photographs themselves, it is not permissible.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
