    May Allah Bless you akhi al khareem. Many people have benefitted from the question you asked. Alhmdulillah. :)

    Ibn Shihaab (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

    "Knowledge is (made up of) many treasures
    and the keys (that open them) are: Questions."

    Praise be to Allaah.

    Drawing is of two types:

    One is drawing pictures of animate beings. It says in the Sunnah that this is forbidden. It is not permitted to draw anything that depicts animate beings, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, according to the saheeh hadeeth: “Every image maker will be in the Fire.” And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The most severely punished of people on the Day of Resurrection will be the image-makers, those who tried to imitate the creation of Allaah.” And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The makers of these images will be punished on the Day of Resurrection, and they will be told, ‘Give life to that which you have created.’”

    The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed those who consume riba (interest, usury) and those who pay it, and he cursed the image-makers. This indicates that making images is forbidden. The scholars interpreted that as referring to images of animate beings such as animals, people and birds.

    With regard to drawing inanimate objects – which is the second type of drawing – there is no sin in that, such as drawing mountains, trees, planes, cars and the like. There is nothing wrong with that, according to the scholars.

    With regard to forbidden kinds of pictures, an exception is made in cases of necessity, such as drawing pictures of criminals so that they will be known and caught, or pictures for identity cards which are essential and which cannot be obtained otherwise, and other cases of necessity. If the ruler decides that producing images of criminals is necessary, because of the seriousness of their crimes and to protect the Muslims from their evil when they are known, or for other reasons, there is nothing wrong with that. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “…He has explained to you in detail what is forbidden to you, except under compulsion of necessity …”

    [al-An’aam 6:119]

    Drawing is allowed within some condition according to Yusuf Al Qaradawi's book "Lawful and Prohibited in Islam" this is the link to read those conditions [Seek and scroll down almost one-third of this page to get the relevant topic]>>>http://bit.ly/1Ltg56h

    Assalamu aleykum,

    I wanted to ask about drawing as a Muslim as I have drawn animate objects but I can't destroy them as they are a part of my coursework for school. I chose art before I knew that Muslims were allowed to draw anything animate and I am not sure what to do. If I destroy the art, I might fail and my GCSE/BTEC results basically decide my future.

    Wa aleykum assalaam,

    Sister, you will have to speak with your course tutor and explain the situation to them. Although you were unaware that it is impermissible to make images of animals at the time, you are aware of it now, so they will have to be destroyed. Your future will be decided by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'alaa, not by exam results, but in sha'Allah the tutor should give you the opportunity to replace them with images that are not haram.
