"It is not allowed to take pictures of beings that have souls, a rule encompasses cameras and other instruments, with the exception of pictures that are necessary, such as a passport or identity photo. There is no ruling for television itself, but rather for how it is used. If it used for what is unlawful - such as for music, for lies, for disbelief, or for licentiousness - then it is unlawful."
