The Islamic Ruling Concerning Tasweer
Both Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan and Shaykh al-Albaanee have clearly outlined and convincingly refuted the mistakes of Shaykh Qaradawi. The issues dealing with drawings, sketches, photographs, and statues, are clearly presented and discussed. Are passport pictures, ID’s and pictures of cars, boats, etc., permissible? Are pictures of living organic creatures (Naam) such as trees, flowers, etc., permissible? Is an image taken with a camera different from a hand drawn image? What about a video taped image? The position of the jumhoor (majority of the scholars) on these issues as well as those who differ are presented.
