Praise be to Allaah.
Yes, there are undoubtedly people who have reservations
about that, namely using images produced by cameras for the purpose of
broadcasting on television and they have reservations about spreading
knowledge via television. That varies according to what Allah has given to
people of knowledge, understanding and insight, and examining end results.
Those who have knowledge and feel at ease working in television and
conveying the message of Allah, will have their reward with Allah. Those
who are confused about the matter and whose hearts are not at ease with
that, we hope that they will be blamed.
Personally, I believe that the one whose heart Allah puts at
ease concerning this issue and whom Allah helps to do that, this serves a
great interest -- which is spreading religion and guiding people to good --
and the harm resulting from the images produced for that purpose it is a
minor harm which is insignificant when compared with the great interest that
is achieved, namely conveying the message of Allah to the people, teaching
the people the laws of Allah and guiding people to good, so that that the
followers of falsehood will not have this field to themselves and will have
all these facilities to themselves to spread their call to falsehood. We ask
Allah to keep us safe and sound. End quote.
