Is taking photographs with a camera haraam
Yes. Taking photgraphs of
(all) that which has a soul (from amongst the humans and animals)
with a camera and other than it is haraam.
And it is upon the one who takes the photograph to repent
to Allaah and seek His forgiveness and feel sad at that which
has come to pass from his actions and not to return to it.
with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and
salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu
`alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
