Ruling on taking a woman’s picture in order to have a passport issued


What is the ruling on taking a woman’s picture in order to have a passport issued so that she can travel with her husband for the purpose of da’wah?

Praise be to Allaah.


It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah (1/496): “A
woman should not allow anyone to photograph her face whether for a passport
or for any other purpose, because it (her face) is ‘awrah, and because the
existence of pictures in passports and elsewhere is one of the causes of
fitnah… unless that is the case of necessity.” 

Based on that, it may be said that if the purpose of the
woman’s travel is da’wah, to call people to Allaah, then this is not
something necessary that would make this action permissible. In many foreign
countries women attend the mosques and Islamic centers and benefit from what
the daa’iyahs are doing there . So there is no need for this woman to expose
herself to fitnah or the risk of doing some haraam actions, especially since
there is such a great need for da’wah in the country where she is living. So
she should focus her da’wah efforts on the people around her, her sisters in
faith. Perhaps Allaah will cause others to benefit from her. 

But if the reason is that the man is going out for the
purpose of da’wah, and his wife is to accompany him, then the ruling varies
according to the length of time that he will spend there. If he will be gone
for a long time, then it is acceptable for him to take his wife with him so
that he will be safe from temptation. But if it is only for a short time,
then he should not take his wife with him, and if he fears that he will fall
into temptation, then he should not go, rather he should occupy himself with
da’wah in the place where he is living in his own country.

 We ask Allaah to help us all to do that which He loves and
which pleases Him.

 And Allaah knows best.

1 - Reading Quran and reflecting over the Quran Is our Duty

Read quran and it will guided us to the true teaching of The Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) he summarized the religion of Islam with this statement: “The Religion is naseehah (sincerity)!” So then Tameem ibn Aws, may Allah be pleased with him, then said, “We asked, ‘To whom?’” He said: “To Allah, HIS BOOK holy quran, His Messenger, the leaders of the people, and their common folk.” [Muslim] so to study the religion people should go to the source of and source of Islam is the quran so learning quran and reading quran with the meaning the quran tafsir and then explore the words of wisdom. And for the Muslims the sincerity that is due to the Book of Allah includes doing the quran recitation, listening to quran along with learning the tajweed rules and reciting it beautifully, letting our kids learn quran learning holy quran tafseer and the reasons for its revelation, affirming that it is the Truth, the perfect Speech of Allah and not part of the creation, honoring it and defending it, abiding by the orders and prohibitions found in it and teaching quran to spread the word or truth and calling to it. So by learning quran education online and reflecting over the Quran online, one fulfills an obligation and is rewarded for that. Upon fulfilling this obligation, the Quran then becomes a proof for him on the Day of Judgment! And that is our second benefit we will take by embracing this Noble Book...
