Working in the field of altering pictures by making them more beautiful and changing the appearance


It is well known that there are many doubts about photography. I would like to know what is the ruling on altering pictures by using Photoshop; this program can make a person look more beautiful and alter some of the features, and it has caused fitnah because some girls come and ask for their eye colour to be changed, or for their eyebrows to be thinned, or for blemishes to be erased from the face, or for the hairstyle to be changed. 

I would like you to explain the ruling on these actions, and I would like complete details of the source of the fatwa so that I may explain to some people with full evidence and proof.

Praise be to Allaah.


scholars have differed with regard to the ruling on photography. In the
answers to questions no. 10668
and 12786 we have stated that
the more correct view is that it is haraam. 


scholars who are of the view that it is permissible and not haraam have
stipulated conditions for that: 

That the purpose of the picture
should be permissible, such as for a passport, driver’s licence and so on.

The photographer should not
introduce any changes or improvements to the picture.

It should not be a haraam
picture such as a picture of a woman in makeup and the like. 

It is clear
that these conditions are not met in the case mentioned in the question.
Thus it is clear that the action asked about here is haraam. 

Shaykh Ibn
‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: 

With regard
to these cameras which produce an image instantly, and the person has
nothing to do with this image, we think that this does not come under the
heading of image-making, rather it comes under the heading of transmitting
an image that Allaah has made by means of this machine. This is like a
reflection and the person has nothing to do with making the image. The
ahaadeeth speak rather of image-making that is done by people in imitation
of the creation of Allaah. This is like when a person writes a letter and
makes a photocopy of it. The image that comes out is not what was done by
the one who operated the machine; perhaps the one who operates the machine
does not even know how to write. People will know that this was written by
the first person, and that the second person had nothing to do with it. But
if he makes this photographic image for a haraam purpose, then it is haraam
because the means that lead to haraam ends are also haraam. End quote. 

Fataawa al-Shaykh al-‘Uthaymeen (2/question no.

And Allaah
knows best.

Learn Holy Quran because it will be a proof for us muslim on the Day of Judgment.

This is due to the statement of the Messenger: “And the Quran is a proof for you or against you.” [Muslim] so the deputy of every Muslim is to read quran and learn quran with tajweed so one of two things will occur with this proof, the Book of Allah. And this quran education will be in your favor, a proof for us on the Day when we will need every single good deed and learning quran along with doing quran memorization is one of it and to add more spread the quran teaching and spread the kids quran knowledge and listening to quran online and understand the quran tafseer , it will be something standing against us and follow the guidance of or prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, and these good deeds will be a proof against us! Who could be saved from the terrors of that Day if Allah’s own Speech is against him?!?! Think carefully, so reading Arabic Quran and teaching our kids quran qaida with the tafseer of quran  and let the kids memorize quran dear Muslim brother or sister, about your position with the reading Quran! Are you neglecting it, contradicting it, being heedless of its orders and prohibitions, are you thinking deeply over it?! Will it be on your side on the Day of Judgment.? So learn quran recitation! O Allah! We ask you, by Your Glorious Speech and the rest of your beautiful Names and Attributes, to make the Quran a proof for us! So the Quran tutor should let his student know about these facts also,
