AssalamuAlaikum, May Allah bless you. I need to know ruling about posting human (any other living being’s) photo on web sites. As creating pictures of living being is wrong. Does the same ruling apply to posting photos on web sites. Mainly when the photo is used as Identity of the person on web site. AssalamuAlaikum.
