Salam aleykoum wa rahmatullah wa barakatouh, peace be upon our beloved Prophet Seyddina Muhammad.
Ô cheikh, I read today a hadith stating that people who draw will be punished on day of resurrection. Ulemma told me that it was ok to draw as long as it respects Islamic rules but now I have a doubt about it.
I start a course for being french teacher in January insha Allah and I entered a comic strip contest meanwhile, as it can bring some precious income to my family and future child.
Barakallahu fik and please pray for our forgiveness.
wa `alaykum salam,
If a Muslim cannot find work that is permissible according to sharee’ah, he may enter a comic strip contest meanwhile, as it can bring some precious income to his family. However, he will keep looking for a job which is more in line with the teachings of Islam.
