Does this image come under the prohibition of Tasweer?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


I would like to use the following images for my work so I thought to ask about it’s ruling. Can you guide me the solution whether or not it comes under the prohibition as I feel that image is not clear.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The big picture on the left will be impermissible since the facial features are easily seen. However, the small thumbnail at the bottom, here and here will be permissible since the facial features are not distinguishable.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
