Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

1) According to our view, it is not permissible to make a video call since the picture on the screen is considered a reproduction of the image.

Taking, creating and storing pictures (including the use of a camera) is impermissible. Numerous Ahadith stress this prohibition:

عن أبي طلحة صاحب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه قال إن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال إن الملائكة لا تدخل بيتا فيه صورة

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Talha (Radiallahu Anhu) that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, ” The Malaaikah (angels of mercy) do not enter a house wherein there are pictures (of animate objects) (Muslim, #5485, Darul Ma’rifah)

 

عن نافع أن ابن عمر أخبره أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال الذين يصنعون الصور يعذبون يوم القيامة يقال لهم أحيوا ما خلقتم

Narrated on the authority of Ibn Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “Those who make pictures will be punished on the day of judgment. It will be said to them, “Bring to life what you have created!” (Muslim, # 5501, Darul Ma’rifah)

 

عن مسلم بن صبيح قال كنت مع مسروق في بيت فيه تماثيل مريم فقال مسروق هذا تماثيل كسرى فقلت لا هذا تماثيل مريم فقال مسروق أما إني سمعت عبد الله بن مسعود يقول قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أشد الناس عذابا يوم القيامة المصورون

Narrated on the authority of Ibn Mas’ood (Radiallahu Anhu) that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “The people who will be most severely punished on the Day of Judgment are those who make pictures. (of animate objects) (Muslim, #5505, Darul Ma’rifah)

The act of storing pictures is also prohibited. There is also evidence in Hadith to indicate that storing pictures of animate objects is impermissible as well:

حدثنا مجاهد قال حدثنا أبو هريرة قال قال رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- « أتانى جبريل فقال إنى كنت أتيتك البارحة فلم يمنعنى أن أكون دخلت عليك البيت الذى كنت فيه إلا أنه كان فى باب البيت تمثال الرجال وكان فى البيت قرام ستر فيه تماثيل وكان فى البيت كلب فمر برأس التمثال الذى بالباب فليقطع فيصير كهيئة الشجرة ومر بالستر فليقطع ويجعل منه وسادتين منتبذتين يوطآن ومر بالكلب فيخرج ». ففعل رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- وكان ذلك الكلب جروا للحسن أو الحسين تحت نضد له فأمر به فأخرج.

 Abu Huraira (Radiallahu anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Jibraeel (Alayhis salaam) came to me and said: I came to you last night, but the only thing that prevented me from entering was the presence of pictures on the door, pictures inside the home on the curtains and a dog inside the home. Therefore, order the head of the picture on the door to be cut so that it will resemble a tree. And order that the curtain be cut into two pieces strewn on the floor to be trampled over, and order the dog to be removed”. (Tirmidhi # 2806, Dar Ihya Al-Turath)
