Asalaumu Alaikum,Jazakallah for this amazing blog, it has helped me alot. Keep it up. I have a problem in convincing a cousin of mine to remove a revealing profile picture of her on a social networking site that I've seen quite recently. It really makes me upset to see her exposing her beauty in such a public environment. The only problem is that I don't have regular contact with her and her family. Should I just tell her to remove her picture immediately in a strict sort of way/proffesional or I should I speak to her in a lighter tone, even though we're not close? Please help me find a solution to this

Now! Back to your question, darling. It is really great that you love your cousin enough to not want her putting up exposing pictures of herself. Use that 'love' when you come to give her nasiha.
Go, both of you, to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed. (43) And speak to him with gentle speech that perhaps he may be reminded or fear [Allah]." ) Surat Taha
Another thing you can do is also put up this link: it's an article where a mom of teenage sons writes to girls about their pictures on facebook
