Abu Dawud Book 27, Hadith Number 4143.

Chapter : Pictures.

Narated By N/A : Abu Talhah reported the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) as say-ing: The angels do not enter the house which contains a picture. Busr (b. Sa’id), the transmitter of this tradition, said : Zaid (b. Khälid al-Juhani) then fell ill and we paid him a sick visit. There was a curtain with a picture hanging at his door. I then said to ‘Ubaid Allah al-Khawlani, the step-son of Maimunah, wife of the Prophet (may peace be upon him): Did Zaid not tell us about pictures on the first day ?’Ubaid Allah said: Did you not hear him when he said: Except a figure on a garment.
