Sheikh `Abdul-Majeed Subh, a prominent Azharite scholar, states: “There is nothing wrong in praying in such a room as long as we do not make the image or statue right in front of us (in the direction of the qiblah). However, if there is no option but to pray while the images or statues are in front, then we can close your eyes and pray. We read in Al-Bukhari’s Sahih a chapter on “Whoever Prays While Fire Is in Front of Him”. I’d like to pay our attention that fire was being worshipped at that time.
Given the above, if a Muslim offered Prayer in such a room you mentioned and put a sutrah in front of him, there is nothing wrong with that.”
