    There's a differnce of opinion. But, to be on the safe side, please do not take pictures of living things.
    Call onto Allah, such that you are certain that He, al-Mujib wal-Kareem, will answer your call before you even lower your hands.

    Re: are Muslims allowed to take pictures?

    Majority of scholars/people say that it is okay to take pictures of living things/humans ect ..as in digital photographs but you can't keep them in the house which would mean like just save them on-line so thats what i did end up doing....

    I think what you mean is you can't take photos of living animals or humans. You can take pics of other living things like trees etc...

    Re: are Muslims allowed to take pictures?

    There are many hadiths on it:

    Abdullaah ibn Mas'ood (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Those who will be most severely punished by Allaah on the Day of Resurrection will be the image-makers." (Reported by al-Bukhaari, see al-Fath, 10/382).

    Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Allaah, may He be exalted, says: 'Who does more wrong than the one who tries to create something like My creation? Let him create a grain of wheat or a kernel of corn.'" (Reported by al-Bukhaari, see Fath al-Baari, 10/385).

    'Ali (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: "Shall I not send you on the same mission as the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) sent me? Do not leave any built-up tomb without levelling it, and do not leave any picture in any house without erasing it." (Reported by Muslim and al-Nisaa'i; this is the version narrated by al-Nisaa'i).

    Ibn 'Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him and his father) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Every image-maker will be in the Fire, and for every image that he made a soul will be created for him, which will be punished in the Fire." Ibn 'Abbaas said: "If you must do that, make pictures of trees and other

    I heard Muslims cannot draw living things or take pictures of living things, why is that?

    Because number 1) Prophet Muhammad explicitly forbade us from doing so, and whatever he forbid us from doing, we don't do that. 2) Because creating living things w/ soul is only a right that Allah has, and no one should do so, even if it's on a paper or made out of rocks.

    But drawing a portrait of a famous person isn't creating anyone? You're just drawing what a person looks like.

    Re: are Muslims allowed to take pictures?

    If we can't take photographs then we can't take videos also, which also falls in the category of trying to recreate the creation of Allah in a photo or video form. We're recreating a creature of Allah by using digital pixels to recreate it. I don't hold this belief however. Was wondering if it is actually that though. Does this mean those thousands of Ulema who have recorded videos and have gotten pictures taken off them in the wrong for doing so?

    What about scientists who make robots? Is that creating, even though robots don't have souls?

    This is a very subjective topic.

    why is it haraam?

    i'll get a scholar to make it halaal. We can get fatwas to make everything halaal so why is taking pictures haraam since they arent even drawn but instead 'captured'

    If it is, it must be in the Old Testament. The New Testament should rectify this.

    Of course, I understand the purpose of this rule: you shouldn't be trying to play God. I'm sure you guys are against stem cell research and the like as well. But as religious humans, we should be able to discern against what is moral and what is not.

    For example, is creating an artificial hand for someone who has lost a limb against God's will? I really don't think so.

    Artificial hands don't have souls.

    Also, creating images for necessities, like for medical purposes, is allowed.

    Photograhs are more a form of someones reflection than they are drawings.

    Re: are Muslims allowed to take pictures?

    Most of the hadiths speak of creating your own version or re creating the forms of another, with photos, your merely capturing what is already created and shaped, your not doing anything except capturing it.

    There's a diff. of opinion, on capturing the reflection or actually creating the image by camera.
