Q: A local supplier of sheep uses 1 of 2 methods in purchasing his sheep from a distant farmer 1. The weight and description is given to him by the farmer telephonically or 2. He views Digital Images of the actual sheep as sent to him by the farmer. Will the transaction of sale (bay) be correct in both situations considering he has not seen the actual animal.
Note: One should refrain from all types of pictures whether digital pictures or any other type of pictures.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
