Can I show my wife picture to my friend


Assalam o Alakum,
I have a German friend as I am working in a German company, we are close enough that he invited me to his home and i met his family also he want to see my wife, Can I show him my wife’s pictures?




Wa Alaykumussalam

Thank you for your query.

There is no problem if there is no possibility of corruption(Fasad) and the picture of your wife is in full Hijab.

Unfortunately, the non-Islamic culture has no Haya and modesty which makes it easier for them even to speak and get closer to the non-mahram.

If it is really required then you can show the picture in full Hijab with the condition mentioned above and make sure he doesn’t ask to look at the picture again and again. But one must try to avoid such actions where you think haram can enter.

Allaho A’lam

May Allah(swt) grant you success
