I am going to start an online website in which users can post anything which is happened in their surroundings. Users are allowed to post 1 picture and a text. Please let me know whether this is a halaal or haram? What I need to take care?

Answer would be helpful for me to avoid my confusion if Allah wills.

    Since the scope of this question is too broad therefore I would answer the question in more or less the same generic manner as I did here. You can ask multiple specific question about things you feel doubtful about though. Dec 11, 2013 at 6:05

  • I'd consider going to a local Mufti. I am not sure posting or even taking pictures is allowed in Islam. If that's the case, then taking your case to a Mufti would be helpful instead of getting contradicting answers here.

The best practice of running this type of website are

  • There must be a EULA which have terms about what users can post and what not, here you can disallow posting haram, anti-Islam, anti-social things.

  • No post should be published without review by the moderator/s.

  • There must be an option of flagging the posts by visitors. So that site admin can review the posts.

If you take all these or more steps honestly to monitor/screen the content of your website. Then there is no harm in running this type of website.

  • Thanks for your reply.....Suppose there is a music concert and a user posted it.....Can i allow? Main intent of my website is affected if i am not allow.....please throw some light////
