As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh
What is your opinion on Digitial Photography? Can youtube be used by Ulama and others for Tableeghi and Islamic purposes?
Ref. No. 38 / 1079
In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Merciful
The answer to your question is as follows:
Some ulama hold photographic imaging, video imaging and the like to be forbidden while others say that today’s digital photography is not that photography which is impermissible in Islam, hence digital photography is not Haram.
Therefore, we say it is better to avoid all kinds of photographic and video imaging. And also it should not be used for Tableeghi Islamic purposes.
And Allah knows best
