Latest fatwa: T-shirts with pictures

A Syrian sheikh just issued a fatwa against T-shirts that show pictures of the stars of the phenomenally popular TV show "Noor."

The sheikh said that it is forbidden by the Prophet, that angels do not appear in rooms that show pictures like these and that her hair is uncovered so it is not allowed to look at her.

In addition, since angels cannot appear where these pictures are displayed, then if these youths wear such T-shirts to mosques for prayer they are stopping the angels from showing up, presumably making the prayers unacceptable to Allah.
