The Ruling on Working in a Store that Sells Merchandise that Has Pictures – Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad

Question: A man works in a store and items that have pictures are sold in this store. So what is upon this worker [i.e. what should he do]?

Answer: “Theses pictures are from what the people have been afflicted with and some canned goods have pictures. So the likes of this are from what the affliction has overcome. So there is no harm in selling it”.

[Sharh Sunan Abi Dawood no. 472]
