Question

 

Is it permissible to share a picture of a deceased with others?

 

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

To keep pictures of the deceased is not permissible. Although the deceased will not be sinful.
(Raddul Muhtar, v.1 p.647)

With regards to your question, it is not permissible to keep pictures of the deceased, which ultimately means it is not permissible to share pictures of the deceased either.

 

Only Allah knows best.
