The Prohibition of Photography
by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahmatullah alayh)

One of the greatest calamities of our times is the abuse of the camera.

In this day and age, with the easy availability of cell-phones, digital cameras, camcorders, etc. everyone seems to be in possession of a tool which has created an upheaval in mischief. …How many have had their names dragged through the mud or have been black-mailed, slandered or left humiliated and disgraced due to photographs taken and then circulated?

Photography is an evil which has been entirely misjudged and under-estimated.

Just recently, a brother related a dream to me, requesting an interpretation. I interpreted his dream saying: ‘It seems as if movies are being viewed in the Masjid.’

Within a matter of days, the interpretation was made apparent. We had a visiting ‘Aalim give a talk in our Masjid. I was sitting on a chair, near the front, when I observed three young boys very absorbed with their cell phones. I requested a friend to go to the back of the Masjid and see what they were up to.

My respected Shaikh, Hazrat Maulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (Daamat Barakaatuhum), has mentioned, in his poetry, that our value is dependent on our Nisbat with Madina Munawwarah.

When anything is purchased and brought from Madina Munawwarah, then a lover of Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) will naturally appreciate and value it no matter how small or how cheap. Why?

…Because it has a connection with the city of the Beloved (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). It has been touched by the air of Madina Sharief, or it has been produced from the blessed land of Madina Sharief - and this is what has made it special.

The residents of Madina Sharief are the neighbours of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and they are the envy of the heavens, because they have such extreme physical closeness to Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). They are the envy of all of us as well – for we too desire the honour of being in such proximity to Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) at all times.
