Drawing some body parts for educational purposes

Home / Children education / Drawing some body parts for educational purposes


I want to teach my child the five senses and the respective sensory organs as well as their parts and functions. In order to carry on this task, I will have to draw each sense. My question is: Is it permissible to draw the senses and their organs and keep it for educational purposes ( I want to do an educational lapbook). May Allah bless you.

Zaynab El-Kateb:

She should not draw any part of the face this is imitation of Allah’s creation (تشبه بخلق الله.) The Scholars say this is prohibited, even for educational purposes as this is not a necessity. Drawing faces or anything which have a soul is a greater sin.
