    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1095/1095=M/1429)

     

    If someone shuns from reading newspaper because it contains pictures it is extreme caution which is commendable. However, one should be aware of the present circumstances; therefore reading newspaper is not unlawful, but staring at pictures deliberately is unlawful.
