Organizations making videos of relief work

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: What is the Shariah ruling on videos. It has become common practice for Ulema to lecture in video, as well as ‘reputable’ muslim NGO making videos of visits to foreign countries where they provide assistance. Recently a visit to Albania, the visit is on video of Ulema presenting food etc. to the impoverished of that country. Orphans are made to stand in front of cameras receiving aid.


A: It is impermissible.

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