Picture being taken while one is unaware

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Today in the world, there are cameras everywhere. If someone takes your picture and you are not in full niqaab then what are the rulings of Islam?


A: Try your best to be covered at all times. If after trying your best someone takes a picture of you then he is sinful. If you can somehow get that picture destroyed you should do so.

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