Wearing anime shirts

Fatwaa ID: 790

Assalamualikum, I’m getting mixed responses on wearing anime shirts. Some people are saying it’s haram and some people say it’s alright. I wear them sometimes but when I pray I wear something over it cause I know you can’t pray with a picture on your shirt. What is the ruling

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Anime is a form of prohibited tasweer. It is not permissible to wear anime shirts in salaah as well as outside of salaah. A simple principle: if you cannot wear something in salaah, then you cannot wear that outside of salaah.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
