Sharing girl's photo for marriage not allowed: Darul Uloom

January 10, 2013 14:41 IST

Leading Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband has said that providing the photograph of a girl to the boy's family for marriage purpose is not allowed under Islamic law.

In a fatwa issued on Wednesday, the seminary said providing the photo of a girl to the boy's family is against Shariat law.

Using photos for only essential purposes was allowed, it said.

The fatwa was issued in response to a question posed by a Muslim girl. The girl had asked if a photo can be sent through an e-mail to the boy's family to arrange a marriage.
