The Ruling on the Prayer of a person carrying a Picture

What is the ruling on the prayer of one who carries a picture, such as having a wallet which contains his picture, and he is afraid of losing it if he leaves it somewhere until he has prayed, or (what if) he has with him money which contains pictures?

It is permissible for a person to pray the obligatory prayers and the non-obligatory prayers while he is carrying a wallet which contains his picture or money which has pictures on it. But prayer without carrying pictures is better for him, if he is able to do it without incurring harm or difficulty to himself, in application of the Hadiths and in order to distance oneself from the disagreements of the scholars regarding two dimensional images. And may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, Muhammad and upon his family and companions
