Questioner: Is it allowed for a person to take pictures of himself to send to his family during Eed and such?
Ibn Baaz: There are numerous hadiths where the Prophet ﷺ forbade image-making [tasweer], cursed image-makers and threatened them with various types of punishment, so it is not allowed for a Muslim to take pictures of himself and of other living things except out of necessity for things such as passports, residency documents and so on.

Questioner: What is the ruling about entering a mosque with mobile phones that have ringtones, pictures and music?
Al-Fawzaan: That is not allowed, not in a mosque or elsewhere, but [doing so] is even more severe in a mosque, because it is obligatory to respect it, it is a place of worship and remembrance of Allaah سبحانه وتعالى, [a place of] prayer and recitation of the Quraan, and the Angels and Muslims assemble in it. So these wrong actions [munkaraat] are not permitted in it, not the ringtones, not the music and nor the pictures.
