Question:

Do angels enter a room where ther is a TV or Computer

Answer:

Bismillah

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

Saaiduna Abu Talha raḍyAllāhu 'anhu (may Allāh be pleased with him) narrates that the Prophet of Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said; “The Angels do not enter a house wherein there is a dog or pictures.” (Sahih Bukhari p.881 v.2)

If the television is on or there are pictures being viewed on the computer, the Angels will not enter such rooms. However, if the television or computer is off or the computer is on but no pictures are being viewed the Angels will enter the room. (Raddul Muhtar p.418 v.2)

Only Allah Knows Best
