The prohibition which has been given is with regards to drawing animate objects which represents animal life. Hence, if you draw a human or animal figure and leave out its eyes etc., then this will not be permissible, because the figure still represents life, seeing that a human being can live without an eye, mouth or nose.

So, it will not be permissible for you to draw a human or animal figure in such a manner that it represents life in the figure. Drawing these without the head is okay since life does not exist without the head.

With respect to drawing impressions of a face in inanimate objects, this will not be allowed, since by doing so, you will be trying to put a type of human life in an object that does not have it, and this is strictly prohibited.

And Allah knows best.

Read the last paragraph:

"With respect to drawing impressions of a face in inanimate objects, this will not be allowed, since by doing so, you will be trying to put a type of human life in an object that does not have it, and this is strictly prohibited."

The abstract drawing above shows the mouth and teeth mixed in with some weird animate looking shapes.

I'm not saying it is clear cut haram in accordance with scholarly understanding but my sister surely it is better for us to keep away from grey areas or where we are on the verge of something that is not permissable. A lot of abstract type of art contains animate shapes and features portrayed in a very sexual, twisted and with dark connotations.

If we leave something for Allah to safeguard ourselves then that will be far better for us. Instead stick to calligraphy or drawing of inanimate art.

And Allah knows best in all matters
