Question

As a student in a secondary school, I enjoy passing my time by reading, which has prompted me to subscribe to a number of magazines. Some of these are Islamic in content, some are for general news and general information, and some are military magazines. Most of these magazines, though, have pictures of people in them. I store these magazines in a private office. I am aware of the punishment picture-makers will receive and I am also aware that angels don’t enter any home in which a dog or a picture is present – these facts I am made aware of by sayings of the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alayhi wa Sallam). Please clarify this issue for me, in such a way that no doubt is left in my mind.


Answer

There is nothing wrong with keeping books, newspapers, and magazines – those that are beneficial – even if there are pictures in them. You should, however, wipe out any pictures of women and the faces of men, applying the authentic Hadith in this regard.



Shaikh Ibn Baz (Rahimahullah)
