Digital Pictures

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by CouncilofUlama.co.za

Q: On whatsapp, which is an instant messaging service for smartphones, people can post a profile for themselves. Many people post a photograph of themselves, other people or other animate objects.

Is this permissible? Please explain.

A: Although some of our Senior ulama have permitted digital pictures of  animate  pictures  provided they are not of ghair mahareem  and a lewd nature, the more precautious veiw would be to abstain, as the virtue of caution and taqwa in all matters is  phenomenal.
