henna print on women.

Q:

Assalamualaikum wa Rahmathullahi wa barakathuhu,

A relative of mine wants to startup a henna business, for starting it from scratch she needs to develop customer trust and satisfaction, for that she has to upload pictures of henna designs and their results (that is stain colour). Her intention is only to advertise to the women. But she is confused and scared of the fact that there is a possibility that those pictures of her hand can be seen by non mahram men.
Being aware of this fact, is it ok to post henna design pictures on her hand, staying firm on her intentions (that is to show to women alone)?
( If you feel any alternative way, you can please suggest )

A:

Assalamu Alaykum

thank you for your Question.

for your Query i got in touch with the office of Sayyid Sistani (D) and they said: If the owner of the Picture is unknown and the pictures itself are not provoking and revealing then it is ok. hence, you should try your best to stick to the need of the image and conceal extra details and beauty of your body as much as you can
