Now, fatwa against Muslim women from posting images on social media

Now, fatwa against Muslim women from posting images on social media”

Deoband: Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband has issued a new fatwa (decree) that bans Muslims from posting pictures on social media sites.

The Deoband is said to have announced that Muslim women should not post their pictures on Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter.

Darul Uloom Deoband considers the act of posting photographs in social media as "un-Islamic".

As per reports, the Mufti who issued the fatwa has said that since clicking pictures is Islam is not allowed, so based on the same logic, posting them "unnecessarily" on social media sites is not allowed, hence the "un-Islamic" tag.

There is one source that never stops amusing us, the Draul Iftaa - the fatwa department of Darul Uloom Deoband. "Unnecessary uploading of pictures on social media is wrong".

Darul Uloom Deoband claimed that there are ten acts which are banned for Muslim women under Islam, and it included the hair cutting and eyebrow plucking too.

The Darul Uloom has earlier, too, issued similar fatwas on issues concerning women - it said women should not work as it made it hard for them to wear a veil.

Earlier, it had asked Muslim women not to pluck and shape their eyebrows.

In general, Islamic scholars have varying views about allowing photography, while more conservative ones view photography as being completely banned, others have a more open view.
