Can we treat a video or photo as an evidence against or for any person in order to prove him guilty or not? If so, then video, photo must be allowed. As you know that videos, photos and many other things preserves events in a real time ie when it happens. So, to know the truth these techniques are extremely helpful to deliver the justice. Islam wants justice to be revealed at any cost and there must not be even an iota of injustice to anybody. In fact these techniques help us to know the truth and a person can not lie if he or she knows that his or her video or photo is taken and can be produced in a court. Like for example I have a shop which has video camera in it, so if somebody attempts to thief and his activities are captured by camera. So, is it allowed in Islam to produce that as an evidence against the thief in a court? If it is allowed then photography, videography must be allowed in Islam if not then why?

I am responsible for business development and marketing of a company; we supply industrial material and get contracts/ projects. But almost 90% of our very low/reasonable profit quotations are rejected as we did not pay any commission/bribe to the procurement/purchasing department whose responsibility is to just award us the order or contract. We are into loss as a result. Is it permissible in any condition to pay them money/gift etc? Secondly if any person awards us a contract can we give him a gift/cash/hotel stay etc which is neither fixed nor agreed earlier, just as a good will that he helped. Kindly if you can give a detailed answer as being a Muslim I need to make sure that I do not earn a single rupee haram.
