Using emoticons

Question: What is the ruling on smilies on computers that are used when brothers chat with each other? These symbols represent ones expressions; to press on a happy smiley symbolizes happiness and to press on a sad smiley symbolizes agitation.

‘Allâmah Zayd bin Muhammad al-Madkhalî: These emoticons are baseless in the Sharî’ah. There is no need of embodied figures except in need, which it (this situation) isn’t. Thus, these smilies are baseless. If these two persons are in need of each other, they can speak via some other method. As for smilies that stand for happiness and anger, then they do not belong to the methodology of Ahl-us-Sunnah wal-Jamâ’ah.
