Erase the Photo Craze

Erase the Photo Craze.

Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

“The people who will receive the severest punishment on the day of
judgment are the picture makers (of animate objects).”

The severity of photography is leaving our muslim community.
When a sin becomes widespread, it is taken very lightly.
We never imagined that this day will come, when let alone taking
photographs, with the cell-phone almost everyone has become a
camera-man videoing day to day outings and get togethers.

Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

“Every picture maker will be in the fire. For every picture that he
makes, a living being will be created and will punish him in

As a muslim our firm Imaan will protect us from all forms of photography.
Be it on the cell phone, computer screen or our photographs appearing
in magazines and newspapers.

Many of us may have stopped taking photographs, let us now complete
our repentance by erasing all stored images and by destroying all old
albums containing our past photographs.

May Allah Ta’ala protect and guide us all. Aameen

Notice: in keeping with the above warnings, I humbly urge all my dear friends to begin at least from refraining in posting pictures and photos as their icon status etc. Our allegiance lies firstly to our Creator and Provider. To earn His pleasure and acceptance is our purpose of existence.

There is no obedience to the creation in displeasing the Creator.

Therefore, if the above warnings are not heeded to, then for the pleasure of my Rabb and Sustainer, that particular BBM contact who persists in displeasing Allah Taala will be removed as a contact.

Nabi alaihis salaam said: whoever amongst you sees an evil deed being perpetrated then he should change it with his hand.

May Allah Taala grant us all the courage and strength to combat our nafs and shaytaan. Let us shame shaytaan and please Rahmaan.
