Q:

Hi my cousin is a male 25 years old guy he works as a fitness model to inspire people and has a well toned body he puts his shirtless pics on Instagram to earn money is his earning halal?

A:

Waalykum salam 

 
Thank you for your Question. 
 
I called the office of Sayyid Sistani and they said that According to Islamic laws, for a man to expose his upper body is ok. And the income he has earned is halal. 
 
Although he may want to look at this ethically and choose a better way of earning money using his talents 
 
Kind regards,
