Q: I want to ask you that is it really haraam to draw anime (Japenese Style Cartoon)? I have only one skill and that is drawing/sketching. I’m really worried about It. Everybody says your Drawing/Sketching is so good. Keep it up. Draw more but I’m confused. What should I do? Please help me.
عن عبد الله قال سمعت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول إن أشد الناس عذابا عند الله يوم القيامة المصورون (بخاري 2/880)
“Undoubtedly, the people subject to the worst forms of punishment on the day of Qiyaamah are those involved in picture-making.”
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
