Yes I am a Muslim.<quoted text>
You are Muslim, correct?
The fatwa issued is against the taking of photos, correct?
Therefore, if your goal is to be a GOOD Muslim, then can I assume you do not own a camera?
Opinion is divided between Islamic Scholars on the issue of Photo taking.
To take a photo with the intention of worshipping and respecting and revering any person, or place or idol is totally banned.
To take photos of natural objects and natural scenes is permissible without any reservations.
To take photos for identification purpose, for ID s and passports is permissible.
To take photos of stranger women and girls is not allowed.
Islam is a very reasonable and logical religion, not some whims and fancies of some one.
And as told to Mr. Frijoles, it is not a WMD, it is only a religious opinion by some Islamic Scholars and it can be contested by other Islamic Scholars.
Cameras are not a taboo in Islam, they are harmless devices, it depends what you use them for.!!
Allah Knows Best
