posted by Akhee! I also checked out Islamcan ( thanx lovely lady) and took permission from the website. batoota yes u can submit your own real life stories but I can’t guarantee u that they will be part of the book. I thought ur name batoota was like bin-batoota the famous adventurer..lol. yes umbillal , Muslim scholars have had different rulings on drawing living things, sheikh yousef al Qardawi and many other
Famous scholars had agreed it is allowed as long as these rules are met:
“drawing pictures like human pictures, trees, etc, there is nothing wrong in drawing such pictures as long as the images do not depict nudity or other indecent representations. Also, the picture or image should not be revered or glorified.” This is quoted from a live fatwa, u should check out this link:
so photography and drawing are forbidden only for reason that it was a means leading to shirk . if it leads to good and benefits Islam why prohibit it!?
