Answered by: Shaykh Ahmed Bin Mohamed Umarji
Is it okay to pray wearing an ID badge that has your picture on it?
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
It is Makrooh to wear anything during prayer that has a picture of an animate object.1 Thus the ID badge should be removed, placed in one’s pocket, or covered before starting the prayer.
Only Allah knows best
