I wanted to know if it is permissible to have a picture frame of my father or any other family member in my home. I heard many brothers telling my that hanging a picture with a face will not bring angels to the house. However, I see many homes with frames of their family. I know that statues are haram, but what is the ruling regarding hanged pictures on a frame?

Scholars have stated that it is haram to make sculptures of humans/animals. Keeping them in the house is not haram, but it is Makrouh, and the angels don’t enter a room in which there are sculptures.

As for photo pictures, they are ok. Yes, praying towards them is Makrouh. So if there is a portrait in front of you during prayer it’s best to cover it or remove it. But keeping the portrait in the house is ok.
