There is a topic online ‘ prayer mats with hidden images ‘. It shows images of living things like human,dog etc on prayer mats and thay say on prayer mats thay found hidden images of living things in prayer mats. so is it permissible to make pray or not on those prayer mats? Or that is untrue! ?
Wa ʿAlaykum Salām Wa Raḥmatullāh wa barakātuhu,
We do not have sufficient information to verify such information.
Nevertheless, one should abstain from praying on such a mat whereupon there are images of living creatures and other impermissible and impure elements.
If the images on a prayer mat are abstract and cannot clearly be defined, then it will be acceptable. One should not unnecessarily assume that those abstract designs are pictures of animate objects.
In any case, if such images distract one, or hinder one’s focus whilst in prayer, then its usage should be avoided.
