Ruling on drawing smiley faces when chatting on the internet

 

Drawing faces or pictures of living beings is haram, but on forums and other places on the internet people draw emoticons using symbols, for example :D represents a smiling face if u look at it vertically. is this haram?.

Praise be to Allaah.

It seems – and Allaah knows
best – that this face, whether it is smiling or sad, does not come under the
same ruling as images that it is forbidden to make, draw, or use, for two
reasons: 

1 – It contains none of the
features of a real face, such as eyes, mouth and nose, and it has no head or
ears. 

The Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The image is the head; if the head
is cut off, there is no image.” Narrated by al-Ismaa’eeli in his Mu’jam
from the hadeeth of Ibn ‘Abbaas and classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in
al-Silsilah al-Saheehah no. 1921 and in Saheeh al-Jaami’ no.
3864. 

2 – The majority of fuqaha’
are of the view that if something is cut off from an image without which it
could no longer live, then it is not a haraam image. For a detailed
discussion of this issue and the views of other madhhabs, see Ahkaam
al-Tasweer fi’l-Fiqh al-Islami, pp. 224-240. 

But we should point out two
things: 

This usage in chatting on
the internet does not come under the drawing of images, rather it comes
under the use of images. 

Please see the answer to
question no. 78963. 

Secondly: A woman should
not use these images when speaking to a man who is not her mahram, because
these faces are used to express how she is feeling, so it is as if she is
smiling, laughing, acting shy and so on, and a woman should not do that with
a non-mahram man. 

It is only permissible for
a woman to speak to men in cases of necessity, so long as that is in a
public chat room and not in private correspondence. See question no.

And Allaah knows best.

The things Muslim should do. We as Muslim should give our first priority in learning quran and do quran reading to seek the right path of Islam and through the quran teaching we can achieve the goal of our life and the deputy to guiding our kids to learn Koran that we should fulfill with perfecting kids quran recitation power and knowledge in Islam and also motivate our children’s to do quran memorization and then guide them to learn holy Quran tafseer  so they could understand the quran in Arabic and the quranic translation and also let or kids to listen quran from top quran reciters to get them inspired. at last I would pray for all my Muslim brothers and sisters that may Allah accept there Dwas and prayers and inspire you with the teachings of our holy prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) so let us join hands and spread the knowledge that every Muslim is born to spread the knowledge of Islam now a day many online quran tutor are available for kids and elders to learn tajweed quran and with exact pronunciation and perfect the quran recitation online with qualified teaching staff  who can guide then with there experience and knowledge and the write teachings to help us in achieving the path of Jannah so learn quran and its teaching and spread the word of Allah
