The General Presidency for the Affairs of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque urged worshippers and pilgrims not to get carried away with taking photos or selfies inside Makkah’s Grand Mosque.
Should the pictures [of humans and creatures] in books be effaced? And does marking [the picture with] a line across the neck suffice in alleviating the prohibition?
I was gifted a camera and began [by] filming an entire film; however, I [then] heard that photographers [and filmmakers] will be punished the most severely on the Day of Resurrection, so what should I do? And should I begin by burning these [films and] pictures? And how about [filming and] taking pictures of nature – without any human beings?
