What does the name Abbas mean?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem. Assalaamu ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu Respected ‘Ulama of Deoband, I know that it is haram to take photographs or to videotape of humans and animals. But, Arab TV channels broadcasts live five-time salawat and as well as the Tarawih salat from Makkah. According to me, it is not permissible or halal. But I would like to hear the fatwa in this regard please. Please answer as soon as possible. Jazakallah khairan wassalaamu ‘Alaikum.


(Fatwa: 865/814=B)


This is the fatwa of most Ulama and Muftis that the photography and videotaping of living beings is disallowed in Islam. There are stringent punishments mentioned in Hadith regarding the same.
