What is the ruling on the person who performs Salah (Prayer) while carrying a picture like the one on his ID card
and fears losing it if he puts it aside until he finishes his Salah? He may also have money in the same place where there are photos.
(Part No. 6; Page No. 178)
A person is permitted to perform obligatory and supererogatory Salah while carrying a picture ID or having money that have pictures on them. However, if he is able to put them aside during Salah without causing him any harm, it will be better. If he does so, he will follow the apparent meaning of the Hadiths and avoid contention that is raised concerning flat pictures.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
