Is it haram to Post pictures on social media


My question is can muslims women and men post pictures on social media? What is the ruling on posting pictures to social media, for example if you post on Instagram a picture of yourself wearing the hijab and being covered (body) but not your face Showing is this allowed? Or is it not allowed to post yourself at all?


Assalamu Alaykum
Thank you for your Question,

It isn’t Haram to post pictures on social media per se, However, if the pictures are compromised on hijab, Islamic etiquettes and or may cause one to fall in a sin by seeing them, then it is not permissible.

Also, couple pictures, family pictures are only showing the memories you’re making in life, these details are counted as personal and internet is counted as the least safe place to share personal details

Hope this helps
