Is Salah valid with Photos in room?

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

It is prohibitively disliked (makruh tahriman) to pray in a room within sight of a painting of humans or animals, and likewise of a hanging picture.

As for toys or books or newspapers with pictures, it is proper that they not be immediately in front of one, but it is not prohibitively disliked to pray in the same room as these.

And Allah alone gives success.

By Shaykh Faraz Rabbani
