Showing face in Hijab allowed ?

Question: Is it fine for Muslim women to show their face, with hijab, on social media for business purposes if you really want to show how your hijab is worn and cannot afford a model? My brand is based on hijabs, stitched ones. بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Answer:

It is not permissible for young Muslim women to expose their face in front of non-mahram men, even if the face is exposed for business purposes and done through social media. Alternatively, you may use a mannequin head that does not have any facial features, e.g., eyes, nose, and lips, to display the scarves.
