Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
The Angels do not enter a house in which there are images showing animate beings. What is the ruling on the images which enter our houses whether we like it or not by means of the television? I do not think there is any house that is free of these televisions nowadays.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
Images on the television do not come under the same ruling as permanent images in the house, because they are shown and go.
And Allaah is the source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace on our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
