Ruling on making a robot


Those who used to make pictures will be asked by Allah to put a soul in their creation, and they will eventually be punished very severely, my question is concerning robotics. What are the limitations we should observe in making a robot for example, having various capacities, but not necessarily human shaped(artificial intelligence, camera vision, sensors for touch,etc).

Praise be to Allaah.


Making a robot comes under the ruling on image-making. To sum
up, if the machine is made in the shape of a man or an animate being, that
is forbidden, and comes under the stern warning that is issued to those who
make images and try to imitate the creation of Allaah. It will be said to
them on the Day of Resurrection: “Give life to that which you have created.”
It also comes under the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him): “Those who will be most severely punished on the Day of
Resurrection will be the image-makers.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, no. 5606;
Muslim, 2109. 

But if the machine is not in the form of an animate being or
is incomplete and would not be taken as a human being or animate creature,
there is nothing wrong with that. 

It should be noted that no matter how far man advances in the
field of technology, he will never be able to make anything that is anywhere
near the creation of Allaah. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“So Blessed is Allaah, the Best of creators”

[al-Mu’minoon 23:14] 

See also questions no.

Now days we as Muslims have to spread the voice to learn quran and so we could gain the true knowledge and the quran teaching that is give to us by our beloved prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and do quran reading. Do we as Muslim ask our self that why we are at the peak of destruction? The answer will be simple that we have left our roots the holy quran we should guide promote Islam from in our homes first and let learn our kids quran  and encourage them in doing quran memorization this should be our first goal for it we can do different stuff like let then participate in different online quran recitation competition to let them listen quran from different online quran reciters and along with it we elders should learn quran also and improve our knowledge of quran and Islam and learn holy quran tafseer because to understand and learn quran Arabic and for this now a days there are many online quran tutor available who teach tajweed quran and its translation and tafseer so let us join our hands to be the voice of Islam and let improve the image of it as well and full fill our duty .
