Is it permissible to draw or print an image of a human wearing an astronaut suit? Such a suit consists of a round helmet on the head that hides all of the human's facial features, including its face shape.



بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful





If the picture is drawn in such a way wherein no facial features are showing, rather the picture almost entirely resembles an astronaut suit alone, then drawing/printing such an image would be permissible.[1]
