Erase the Photo Craze, Islam and Photography, Muslim photographers, Photography in Islam, severest punishment on the day of judgment, Severity of Photography in Muslim Community, Taking photos in Islam, Taking pictures in Islam, What is the torment for Photographers
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).” (Saheeh Bukhari #5950 & Saheeh Muslim #5539)
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 jahannam.” (Saheeh Muslim #5540)
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.
