The Islamic ruling regarding photography shaykh Muhammad Naasirudeen Albani
About the Paper
Sheikh Muhammad Nasir-ud-Deen Al Albani in his book “The Etiquettes of Marriage” details, while listing some prohibited matters commonly taking place among Muslims at some weddings, the prohibition of picture making (and them being hung on walls) whether it be a portrait painted by hand, drawn, sketched, etc or if it is produced by way of a mechanical device e.g. a photograph.
He quotes authentic narrations that are very strong and compelling in nature to support this position. At some point in his discussion he mentions an exception to this fundamental ruling of prohibition, and it pertains to when there is therein a benefit.
