Saharanpur (Uttar Pradesh): The well known Islamic seminary in Saharanpur, Darul Uloom Deoband, has issued a fatwa banning Muslims from posting pictures on social media sites.
Darul Iftaa, which issues the Darul Uloom Deoband’s edicts, has pronounced that Muslim men and women should not post pictures of themselves or their family members on social media, adding that the act is un-Islamic.
The fatwa was issued when a person submitted a written question to the Fatwa department, Darul Iftaa asking whether posting pictures of oneself or his wife on Facebook and Whatsapp was un-Islamic or not.
The fatwa said that Islam doesn’t allow the act. On October 9, the seminary had issued another fatwa banning Muslim women from plucking, trimming and shaping their eyebrows.
