Scale models of the two Sacred Mosques

Question: I would like to know the ruling on making a model for Al-Haramayn Al-Shareefayn (the Two Sacred Mosques i.e. The Sacred Mosque in Makkah and the Prophet’s Mosque in Madeenah) including the Sacred Ka`bah with the aim of selling them to the pilgrims and other Muslims who wish to buy them as souvenirs.

Answer: It is not permissible to make scale models for Al-Haramayn Al-Shareefayn as they may contain pictures of the people in Al-Masjid Al-Haram (the Sacred Mosque in Makkah) while making Tawaaf (circumambulation of the Ka`bah)… read more here.
