Q: As per your last message received, pictures of Makkah and Madina is not allowed to view in Islam. My question is I hear audio recitation of Quran
with its translation. Is that allowed in Islam?
A: This is permissible. The prohibition mentioned in the Hadith relates to making or viewing pictures of animate objects.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
