“It is not permitted to make a statue out of snow, even by way of play and fun,” he wrote on his website.

“God has given people space to make whatever they want which does not have a soul, including trees, ships, fruits, buildings and so on,” he continued.

The Sheikh’s edict came in response to a follower who asked him if fathers were allowed to build snowmen for their children.
