  • If the Bitmojis has eyes, a nose and earshe is part of what is Haram in Islam.
  • Otherwise, if the bitmojis has only eyes, he is Halal, because Islam does not forbid such images.
  • On the one hand, if bitmojis have a body but no nose, ears or eyes, it is therefore Halal. However, you must ensure that the body is well covered.

According to the Prophet Mohammed in the Hadith: "The creators of these images will be punished on the Day of Resurrection, and it will also be said to them: Give life to what has been created". This hadith insists on the fact that creating any work resembling a human being is prohibited in Islam. Thus, it is strongly forbidden to create them and of use them.
