Question

Assalamu'alaikum, do you know whether sheikh shalih al fawzan permitted non live videography for beings with soul? Jazakallahi khairan.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

We are not aware of any Fatwa from Shaykh Al-Fawzaan regarding videos of living beings, whether recorded videos or live broadcasting. However, Shaykh Ibn 'Uthaymeen  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him issued a Fatwa permitting it.

Since you write to us in Arabic sometimes, please refer to our Arabic website to read the view of Shaykh 'Uthaymeen regarding this issue. The Fatwa is available under this number 110405.

Allah Knows best.
