Drawing pictures that resemble humans

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I wanted to ask if all of the following are haraam:

1. Painting an impressionistic drawing of human, meaning a blurr or a silhouette to represent a human but not clearly painting the features.

2. Drawing a human figure with no face with the sole purpose of representing clothes.

3. Drawing cartoons with very unrealistic features for example a triangle for a nose and dots for eyes.

4. Drawing humans without a face.

Bismillaah

A: If the picture is drawn without the entire head, it will be permissible.

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