I am a website and stationary designer. Can I use images of living beings (people or animals etc) in my design if the images are provided to me by my clients?
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
It is severe sin in the Shariah to photograph the pictures of living beings or get it photographed by someone else. Using the picture of living being in the design is unlawful and haram. Hence you should not use the picture of living beings in your design. In case a customer wants to add any living picture in his design, you should reject it politely.
Allah knows Best!
