Reading newspapers

Q: Are you allowed to read newpapers (on-line or paper-copy) if you know there will be pictures of men and women on it or is it ok to read as long as you don’t look at the pictures?


A: We do not say that it is haraam, but it is difficult to avoid the evil that the paper is spewing out.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
