Making taubah from sharing animate pictures on whatsapp

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I shared a pic on whatsapp on which a girls picture was printed and on the bottom it was stated that it is Yahodi sazish. So one member informed me that it was wrong, so I deleted it and sent a message not to share it because it will give me gunah. I tried to message my groups and tell them not share it. If they share it then it is not my responsibility of gaining sin or gunah. I want to ask you that if anyone shares it, will I be sinful because I tried to stop it?


A: When you have cleared yourself and made taubah and asked others not to forward it your responsibility has ended. Hence, you will not be sinful.

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