Praying Salaah in a room with books containing drawings

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q. I know that it is established from the Hadith that pictures and drawings are haram. Even a hadith state that angels do not enter the house with pictures and drawings.

Since I am a student, I have many books, guides, notebooks etc. with drawings and pictures and some even have pictures on their cover. I used to offer some of my individual salaah like Sunnah salaah of Fajr in the same room where the above mentioned books are placed. I pray my salaah on the principle that deeds depends upon intentions and nothing is hidden from Allah and aims that Allah will accept my salaah. I want to know is my salaah valid in the same room?

A. Salaah will be valid in the same room.

And Allah knows best.
