34904: It is permissible to make pictures for essential purposes

Are there some situations in which it is permissible to make pictures?.

Published Date: 2010-02-25
Praise be to Allaah.  

Making images and pictures of animate beings is completely forbidden at all times, except when there is an essential reason for doing so, such as a photo for a passport, or for identification documents, or to show pictures of suspects so that they will be recognized, or testing purposes, or when applying for a job, and other ways in which trickery may be prevented or security protected. In this case a concession is granted, only as much as is essential. 

From Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 1/478.
