Magazines That Contain Pictures of Unveiled Women
Question:

What is your view regarding magazines sold in the market that contains pictures of unveiled and seductive women? Is it permissible to sell these kinds of magazines?
Answer:

All magazines and journals that have pictures of women should be prohibited because they are a cause of temptation, and as such, the government has agreed to forbid them - and all praise is for Allaah Almighty. The Minister of Information has issued a prohibition against these kinds of magazines. It is the responsibility of everyone, through the authorities, to prevent the sale and distribution of magazines which contain is indecent and suggestive. And it is the responsibility of the Ministry of Information to monitor the process of preventing these magazines from reaching the market. May Allaah Almighty guide them to always doing what is in the best interests of the Muslims.
