Keeping pictures on cell phones


I read your answer about the ruling on keeping pictures for memories, and after that I burned the pictures that I had, but there are some pictures of me that my sisters and paternal aunts have. What should I do? If they refuse to give them to me, what should I do? And what is the ruling on keeping pictures on cell phones?.

Praise be to Allaah.

It is not permissible to keep pictures of animate beings for
memories. This has been discussed in the answer to question no.

There is no sin on you if your sisters and aunts keep these
pictures, but you have to explain the shar’i ruling to them and advise them
to get rid of them. You should ask them for the pictures that they have of
you, but if they refuse there is no sin on you. 


With regard to pictures on cell phones, computers and videos,
these do not come under the same ruling as photographs, because they are not
tangible, unless they are printed. Based on that, there is nothing wrong
with keeping them on the cell phone, so long as they do not include anything
haraam, such as if they are pictures of women. 

See also question no.

And Allaah knows best.

Following note from Learning Quran online Blog 


Learn holy Quran online which it self states in it that only those who are learn quran and pure should touch the holy text: This is indeed a Quran in Arabic in a book well-guarded, which none shall touch but those who are clean (56:77-79).  One should make formal ablutions before handling or Quran reading and this the quran tutor should tell in his quran teaching when quran for kids lessons are going on. After intercourse or menstrual bleeding one should not touch the holy Quran or do quran recitation and also not do quran memorization until after bathing non-Muslim should not handle the sacred text, but may listen to Quran online or read quran translation or exegesis. With all these things in mind when one is not reading or reciting holy Quran it should be closed and stored in nice and clean place, it should never be placed on floor or in a bathroom and Muslim should focus on reading quran the tajweed quran and its rules with a proper institute.
