Keeping Magazines

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

How should I keep magazines which have human photos in it?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

I pray this finds you in the best of health and spirits. There is no harm in keeping magazines of wholesome content, even if they have pictures (and even if they have impermissible pictures within). However, it is best to keep them such that they aren’t prominently on display, nor in the immediate surroundings of one’s place of prayer.

And Allah alone gives success.

Faraz Rabbani
