Showing films about Hajj

Question

What is the ruling on showing educational films about the rituals of Hajj in the mosque or Islamic centre for people who want to go for Hajj?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

We put this question to Shaykh ‘Abd-Allah ibn Jibreen (may Allah preserve him) who replied as follows:

 This action is obviously beneficial in terms of sharee’ah, and there is a need to use pictures to teach them, because descriptions alone may not be sufficient. Pictures in films are not lasting, so they do not come under the rulings that forbid taking pictures.

And Allah knows best.
