    What should I do if I have a picture in my house and I have a dog? And does angel Gab (OP)


    My Christian mother bought me a dog so that I can learn to have responsibilities while she thinks that I’m not responsible. So in that case will the angels come to my house if I have a dog with this condition?

    Oh, and I have a picture of Jesus Christ in my room and a mother picture of mother Marie, and a picture of myself of when I was baby, but still I do not worship non of these pictures, in fact, I do not worship no one and nothing except God Almighty. And I did not decided to buy this pictures, it was in my room, I guess before I was born.

    So, in my case will angels of mercy will enter my room? And I can simply put a cover on these pictures as if I put the blanket on me? I’m thinking like this because, if I cover them as I cover myself before I go to sleep, then the angels will not be able to see if there’s a picture or not, this my strategy how call the angels to my room.

    What should I do with these pictures? Shall I simply give to someone? Or, to put a cover to them as I cover myself with a blanket before going to sleep? And do they( angels) come to my room, if I have this dog as pet with condition of learning to be responsible?

    And, does angel Gabriel visits everyone’s house and visit ever single person just like he visited prophet Muhammad?

    Because, my wish is, to come all angels in my house and do they even protect me from devil?
    I mean, do they( angels) kick devil’s ass out from my house?

    Out of curiosity.

    And how come some Muslims do have pictures with themselves in a living room?

    Yes I have understood this but I meant the time in the future when he can move to his own. He of course can talk with his parents about pictures in home but if they don´t agree, is here much he can do?

    My Sect : No Sect

    My Aqeedha : Aqeedha of Sahabas as in http://legacy.quran.com/112

    Just a Muslim with Glorious Quran and (hadith) sunnah as my guide as in verse 41:33 '' And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, "Indeed, I am of the Muslims."

Ooo, now I know why God has said: Those who makes an image will be Punished severely, because so that we won’t get deconcentrated during the prayer, and to focus clearly, maybe that’s why. And besides that, I had no intention of imitating God, because, simply, I have no power to imitate Him, and to me to imitate Him, it’s extremely impossible, to imitate Him, and I wound’d have any intention to imitate Him nor to pray anyone besides Him. I will always pray to God as Muslim do, and I would never ever pray to anyone except to Him.


    Making statues or pictures is one of the biggest sins that will never be forgiven. According to a hadeeth of the prophet salla Allaho alaihi wa sallam: "the picture /statues makers will be ordered to put soul in the picture, as he/she will not be able to do so, they will be punished for ever." (Allah knows the best).


    You being a Muslim made a statue. We consider you to be God-fearing but this act of yours indicate that you are not.

    The angels do protect us. Read the following verses' translation and explanation about the angels relation with a mo'min (practicing Muslim):


    (41:30) Those32 who say “Allah is our Lord” and then remain steadfast,33 upon them descend angels34 (and say): “Do not fear nor grieve,35 and receive good tidings of Paradise which you were promised.


    Exp. note 33:

    33. That is, they did not call Allah their Lord merely incidentally, nor were they involved in the error to regard Allah as their Lord and at the same time others as well as their lords, but they embraced the faith sincerely and stood by it steadfastly: neither adopted a creed contrary to it later nor mixed it up with a false creed, but they fulfilled the demands of the doctrine of Tauhid in their practical lives as well.

    “Then remain upright” has been explained by the Prophet (peace be upon him) and the eminent companions thus:
    Anas has reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Many people called Allah their Lord, but most of them became disbelievers. Firm and steadfast is he who remained firm on this creed till his death. (Ibn Jarir, Nasai, Ibn Abi Hatim).
    34. It is not necessary that the coming down of the angels may be perceptible, and the believers may see them with the eyes, or hear their voices with the ears. Although Allah also sends the angels openly for whomever He wills, generally their coming down for the believers, especially in hard times when they are being persecuted by the enemies of the truth, takes place in imperceptible ways and their voices penetrate into the depths of the heart as peace and tranquility instead of just striking the ear-drums. Some commentators have regarded this coming down of the angels as restricted to the time of death or grave, or the Plain of Resurrection. But if the conditions in which these verses were sent down are kept in view, there remains no doubt that the real object of stating this thing here is to mention the coming down of the angels on those who struggle with their lives in this world in the cause of the truth, so that they are consoled and encouraged and they rest assured that they are not helpless but the angels of Allah are at their back. Although the angels also come to receive the believers at the time of death and they also welcome them in the grave (in the state of burzakh), and they will also accompany them constantly on the Day of Resurrection, from the time Resurrection takes place till their entry into Paradise, yet their company is not particularly restricted to the Hereafter but remains available in this world also. The context clearly shows that in the conflict between the truth and falsehood just as the worshipers of falsehood are accompanied by the devils and mischievous people, so are the believers accompanied by the angels. On the one hand, the companions of the worshipers of falsehood show their misdeeds seem fair to them and assure them that the tyrannical and dishonest acts that they are committing are the very means of their success and through them only will their leadership and dominance remain safe in the world. On the other hand, the angels come down to the worshipers of the truth and give them the message that is being mentioned in the following sentences.



    35. These are very comprehensive words, which contain a new theme of consolation and peace for the believers, in every stage of life, from the world till the Hereafter. This counsel of the angels in this world means: No matter how strong and powerful be the forces of falsehood, you should not be afraid of them, and whatever hardships and deprivations you may have to experience on account of your love of the truth, you should not grieve on account of them, for ahead there lie in store for you such things against which every blessing of the world is insignificant. When the angels say the same words at the time of death, they mean this: There is no cause of fear for you in the destination you are heading for, for Paradise awaits you there, and you have no cause of grief for those whom you are leaving behind in the world, for we are your guardians and companions here. When the angels will say these very words in the intermediary state between death and Resurrection and in the Plain of Resurrection, they will mean: Here, there is nothing but peace for you. Do not grieve for the hardships you had to suffer in the world, and do not fear what you are going to face in the Hereafter, for we are giving you the good news of Paradise, which used to be promised to you in the world. ************************************************** ************************************************** *********



    (41:31) We are your companions in this world and in the Hereafter. There you shall have all that you desire and all what you will ask for.


    (41:32) This is by way of hospitality from Him Who is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
    ************************************************** ************************************************** ****


    I advised you so many times to start understanding the Holy Quraan but you never accepted my words. Remember that satan is a very bad and open enemy. Satan tries to attack ignorant people. The prophet (Final of the Prophets ) salla Allaho alayhi wa sallam told us that if we hold fast to the Quraan and Sunnah we will never go astray. So that is the condition, otherwise, you are in danger of straying. Too many strange questions are put by Satan into your mind and we are tired now from answering such questions. The only treatment is to understand the Holy Quraan with the Sunnah.

    O Allah, I seek refuge in You from the punishment of the grave,

    and from the punishment of Hell-fire,

    and from the trials of life and death,

    and from the evil of the trial of the False Messiah.

    What should I do if I have a picture in my house and I have a dog? And does angel Gab

    It seems that I have to say goodbye forever to my images that I have made in past. Will I be forgiven if I stop making images? If my Christian sister asks me to draw for her a picture with mother Mary and Jesus Christ because her drawing teacher asked her to do while she is not able to draw and she knows that I draw very beautiful pictures, have I committed a sin by doing like this? And I have granted her help. Because, I’m trying to be a good brother.

    1) Allah tells man of the greatness of His forgiveness and mercy
    2) you can draw anything you want besides human beings and animals

    Al-Hamdulilah for forsaking that which you love to do for the sake of your Lord. Now going forward you cannot draw and paint anything especially pictures of what you think looks like Mary and her son for that would not be sincere in giving up what you like for the sake of Allah. And you can't use the rationale that indulging in that for your sisters sake because it gives precedence to your sister over your Creator. And there is no obedience to the creation in disobedience to the Creator. And Allah Knows Best.

    Everything that looks like a human being, birds, insects etc are not permissible, be it a creature with a weird shape. Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The makers of these images will be punished on the Day of Resurrection, and they will be told, ‘Give life to that which you have created.’”

    Firstly, don't let the dog lick you, and you shouldn't pet it except on its head (where it can't lick itself), 2ndly try to have a room or a corner for prayer, which your dog cannot reach, and lastly makes lots of dua

    P.S keep covering the photos if you can't get rid of them or transport them to another room, because it is shirk, and shirk is the biggest sin in islam. may allah protect us
    I’d like to share with you an information I learned. The thing is that keeping a photo might lead you to shirk only if you worship that phot then yes, it is shirk. But if one does not worship that photo it is no longer shirk, but only a sin. For more information, check Islamqa.

    Re: What should I do if I have a picture in my house and I have a dog? And does angel

    Alright. I have managed to transport some of the pictures I have in my room. And my Christian mother just got home, and if she’ll see me that I transport the picture with me when I was baby somewhere, she’ll probably thinks I’m not correct in my head. If God See me that I try to transport the pics I have in my room step by step till I reach the final one, then He will right in the list of my good deeds as a good deeds? Or, I have to do all in the same day?

    Hey brother, thanks for the information reply

    When I said the picture is shirk, I did not mean you are committing shirk necessarily. I was being vague on purpose, but I didn't mean to make you think you are sinning... Just wanted you to know that it is dangerous to say the least, so sorry about that.
    Nevertheless, it is best to stay away from things like this. I am sure you understand inshallah

    Jazakallah
