Details of the Question
Is it permissible to perform prayers with clothes that have some pictures/photos on?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Pictures or photos which are covered and are under a cloth do not harm the prayer. However, when such pictures or photos are not covered, it will be makrooh (abominable) but the prayer will be valid. It is not true not to perform prayers just because of the pictures on clothes. It is better to wear clothes that have no pictures. However, the clothes with pictures do not invalidate the prayer. It is even permissible to perform prayers on newspapers that have photos instead of prayer mats. They do not invalidate the prayer. But there must not be pictures or photos on the place where the prostration is performed or on the place where the forehead touches.
