Taking pictures of yourself is a great sin – Religious scholar


A Nigerian Facebook user, Abiona Taofeek Altruist, has applauded people who have never uploaded their photos on social media.

The religious scholar prayed to God to soften the heart of “stubborn” people who are fond of doing it. According to Abiona, people need to stop capturing pictures as it’s indeed a great sin.

“May Allah bless those brothers and sisters who have not for once uploaded their pictures on social media, and may He soften the heart of those stubborn people who are so fond of doing it. Just stop capturing a picture, it’s indéed a great sin. Repent now and turn back to Your Lord[Allah]. May Allah forgive our shortcomings, give us the best understanding of His Deen[Islam] and preserve us upon sunnah and goodness.”
