Picture making

Q: I have a question regarding pictures and videos. Taking own picture or others is haram or halaal and why? Taking own videos or others is haram or halaal and why?


A: The hadeeth has prohibited pictures of animate objects. The worst punishment is for the picture maker. The hadeeth also says that the picture maker is cursed.

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