I've already inquired for a similar question, but my previous question was in regards to "Can women put their pictures (without hijab) on the internet". So, at that question I concluded that it is impermissible for women to utilize their photographs without hijab in cyberspace, since haram is haram (and it can has its negative effect [sin] on the viewer) and ...

But about the ones whose images are with hijab, I assume: since there can be existed the probability of an amount of sin (as a possibility) for the ones who watch her(them) as non-mahrams, I was wondering if it is permissible, Makruh or impermissible for women to utilize that if their photos are with hijab?


Can women post their photos (with hijab) on the internet? Some women publish their photos in full hijab on virtual networks. It is not permissible if these images are abused, provocative or corrupt to the woman. It is not permissible to use various colors if it is in a way that attracts the attention of the non-mahram so that the lady is pointing the finger. It is true that some people have good intentions and want to have a clean, stylish and tidy hijab, but they should pay attention to this point, so that they do not stand out in the eyes of others, even among women; Or attract the attention of non-mahrams, which is not permissible in either case. But if this is not the case and their hijab is normal and others are attracted to this hijab, there is definitely no problem.

I was told by a scholar this is not a good idea as a non-mahram can enjoy her face as much as he wants (she isn't going to catch him staring at her for 3 hours!) and zoom in etc.

  • Firstly, you'd better expand your answer + ref. as much as possible. Secondly, I appreciate your short helpful answer, especially you mentioned a notable/important issue that "a non mahram can enjoy her face as much as he wants", yeah, it is de facto true, a significant point, God bless you for pointing it out.
