Hello i'm a web developer and i wanted to know if it was haram to develop websites where users and admin would add images, the images are for cultural events.

ps; i will not be taking pictures, not adding pictures, but i would give the tool Baraka allaho fikoum


There is nothing wrong in that. As a matter of fact, there is nothing wrong with having a picture gallery like the above -or even taking those pictures if it is required from you.

In Islam what is generally accepted as Haram is drawings not actual pictures (which itself is also disputed).

Knowingly developing a tool for a website which would be dealing with Haram will get you into trouble. Otherwise, a tool is a tool, a phone for instance can be used for good and bad and so is a computer. The owners of the website could put text based images or pictures, that is up to them as to how they wish to use them.

However creating a website knowing that the owners would use it for haram purposes would be an issue.

And Allah knows best.
