Selfies and Photos and Pictures …

Questioner: Is it allowed for a person to take pictures of himself to send to his family during Eed and such?

Ibn Baaz: There are numerous hadiths where the Prophet ﷺ forbade image-making [tasweer], cursed image-makers and threatened them with various types of punishment, so it is not allowed for a Muslim to take pictures of himself and of other living things except out of necessity for things such as passports, residency documents and so on.
