Can I draw pictures of living creatures?

Question:

Can I draw pictures of living creatures? I love drawing I was thinking about drawing the story of how Islam came to be.

 

Answer:

Majority of the current Maraji’ (scholars) say that drawing is permissible, including drawing the full body or face of a living creature. The only┬áthing that would make it haram is if it used for wrongful purposes such as pornography or if the drawings are worshipped somehow.
