A man identified as Abiona Taofeek Altruist on facebook has revealed that it is a great sin for people to take pictures and post on social media. According to Abiona, it is indeed a great sin and he asked people guilty of this to repent and turn back to Allah. He however prayed for ‘infidels’ who take pictures of themselves and share on social media.
His post reads ;
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.
