Gazing at Pictures

Gazing intentionally at pictures (of living things) to
derive pleasure, is haraam. If the gaze falls on such
pictures unintentionally it will not be sinful. (Someone
asked:) “What if the picture is viewed from an artistic
point of view?” Hadhrat Thaanwi rahmatullah alayh
“Forget about artistic achievement or value of a
picture-maker. It is unlawful to look at some things
created by even the True Artist, Allah Ta’ala. Gazing
at females and young lads is haraam. The Fuqaha have
well-understood the danger of such viewing ostensibly
or the sake of art. The Fuqaha have ruled that it is
not permissible to look at wine to derive mental pleasure
