Let him create a grain or kernel of corn.” It has been reported by Ibn Abbaas that ones the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) said as follow, “Every image-maker will be in the fire of for every image that he made a soul will be created for him, which will be punished in the fire.” It has been reported that ones the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) said as follow, “The angle doesn’t enter the house where there are the dogs and pictures” As we can see from the above hadiths that taking of picture is strictly banned and no-doubt they have a great sin. So we must not take the picture. so that we may be saved from the torture of Allah Almighty.
