Q: I would like to know the ruling on making a model for Al-Haramayn Al-Sharifayn (the Two Sacred Mosques i.e. The Holy Mosque in Makkah and the Prophet's Mosque in Madinah) including the Sacred
with the aim of selling them to the pilgrims and other Muslims who wish to buy them as souvenirs.
It is not permissible
to make scale models for Al-Haramayn Al-Sharifayn (Part No. 1; Page No. 689) as they may contain pictures of the people in Al-Masjid Al-Haram (the Sacred Mosque in Makkah) while making Tawaf (circumambulation of the Ka`bah) or offering Salah (Prayer) and of the people in
Al-Masjid Al-Nabawy (the Prophet’s Mosque in Al-Madinah), the reciters and others, also because the green dome appears in the picture of
Al-Masjid Al-Nabawy which makes some people believe in domes and the people buried in them and this may lead to Al-Shirk-ul-Akbar (major form of associating others in worship with Allah) and other evils; may Allah save us from that.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
