Earning by taking ID photos

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am currently employed by taking ID photos of people that want to make ID documents or want to renew their drivers licence. Am I commiting a sin? I have no other work to support myself or my family. Currently there is a demand for ID photos in my town. Even Muslim people come to me for photos for passports. Please advice me. 

Bismillaah

A: Look for another alternate halaal job, and in the meantime make istighfaar for whatever you are doing.

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