Strangely there is nothing in the Quran about tv o_0

But the rule that forbids
(i) the making of pictures,
(ii) the keeping of pictures,
(iii) entering houses wherein there are pictures displayed and
(iv) looking and gazing at pictures with desire or satisfaction

is thought to extend to 'animate pictures' ie tv.

The rule is in place because pictures are considered to be almost an imitation of Allah's creation of humans, which is forbidden. Also, there is a similarity to idols.
However, photos are allowed as they are not hand made, and show a captured image.
