Social media

Q:

I am applying for a Social media job. But I’m not sure if this is correct because we would have to put pictures of people however, women can be put on the pictures and many women may not have hijab, so is it forbidden for me to send images of women because of hijab. What should I do?

A:

In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-Giving

All praise is due to Allah alone; peace and blessings be upon Our Prophet Muhammad.

Social media has become a huge source of income for millions of people nowadays. But a Muslim has to be cautious and to avoid earning from any content prohibited by the Shariah. Of course, displaying images of women without hijab is prohibited by the Shariah. So, the questioner has to avoid it; or else part of his earning will be haram in proportion to the haram content displayed.

Allah knows best.
