Using messaging apps which contain faces in the profile

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: There is an app I use to communicate with my cousins in another country called Hangouts and it has this square face in the profile every time a person sees a message or sends one. Can I send a message or not as I will be assisting in sin by making them see the square face? 


A: If there is a way that you can delete this square face then delete it. Otherwise, make istighfaar.

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