Nasihah (Advice): Sayyiduna Abu Talhah (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that the Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam) said: “The angels (of mercy) do not enter a home in which there is a dog or pictures of living creatures displayed.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith #: 3225, Narrated by Abu Talhah)
Question and Answer:
Q. Please help. I know we are not allowed to hang any pictures in home as frames or on display of living animals or people. But what abt those on our food like on cereal boxes and other items.
I thought if we kept them away in cupboards it would be ok? Its not left in open areas. Pls advise
(Query published as received)
A. After use, these should be covered or kept away in the cupboard. They should not be left out and displayed when not in use.
