Praise be to Allaah who sent His Messengers (peace and
blessings of Allaah be on them) with clear explanation.
Today, many people complain of unanswered supplications,
bad dreams, anxiety etc. This is as a result of what we caused
due to our attitude with regards to the Dos and don’ts of
Allaah. The prophet has warned us that: “The people who will
be most severely punished on the Day of Judgement will be
the image-makers.” Yet we couldn’t do without pictures. Some
even spend extravagantly on pictures.
How can someone fill his house with images/pictures (Starting
from the pictures hanged on the wall to those on standing,
wallpapers, tables, clothes, DVDs, calendars, books of some
Quranic chapters etc)? Some even pray towards the pictures.
And the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) said,
“The angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or an
image.” (Bukhari and Muslim)
Scholars thus explained that the images which prevent the
angels from entering a house are images of animate beings,
apart from images that are deal with in a disrespectful manner
and the angels are those who go around bringing mercy,
blessing and prayers for forgiveness and warding off the harm
of the Shaytaan from him.
SubhanAllaah! Despite that the picture maker/keeper will be
punished for the sin, he is still deprived of Angels of blessings
from entering his house.
Ask those who are specialists in doing ruqiya for those who
have been possessed by Jinns, they will tell you single picture
may become a mansion for shayaateen.
Therefore, let’s stop living and dining with jinns. Dispose or
efface all the images/pictures and let the angels of mercy enter
We ask Allaah for forgiveness and increase us in hidayah.
……May Allāh guide us to the right path.
