Drawing a face

Q: I heard that it is permissable to draw a picture of a human being if he doesn’t have limbs necessary for living. Does this mean that we can draw a
profile picture of a persons head/face, without the body, since nobody can live without the body?


A: Refer to http://muftionline.co.za/node/2477

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
