I would like to know if the following is permissble with regrads to drawing animate pictures;


1. Drawing it without any facial detail eg no eyes, nose, and mouth.

2. Only Drawing the outline.
3. Drawing only the body without the face.


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

It is permissible to draw animate objects if there is no head attached as such a figure resembles the inanimate objects. As for drawing an outline of the human body or drawing a complete body without the features of the face, it would be preferable to abstain from doing so.

And Allah knows best
