it is an anti-sunni site, and therefore it is not reliable. Full of lies at that aswell, for example it says that the Asharis are deniers of Allah's attributes, which is just a complete lie.
a good reliable source is www.sunnipath.com

as for the article, it seemed to be fine (about the home). As for the actual website, http://www.witness-pioneer.org/vil/, then it is a good site for different resources, a bit like aswatalislam.net is for audio.
So in this site, there is good Sunni stuff, and then there is also salafi stuff, anti-sunni stuff, and anti-salafi stuff. And then there is other excellent stuff like the biographies of the sahabah (ra).
So as long as you know what you're looking for, then you should be ok. I actually used this site quite a bit and took stuff from it and put it on my website.

Just to say, the article is actually a section of Yusuf Al-Qaradawi's book "Halaal wa Haraam fil Islam". There are mixed views about him amongst the ulema, and in particular the following thread my help: http://www.sunniforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=162

on the issue of photography, there is a genuine ikhthilaaf on it and therefore one can follow either opinion (that its allowed or that its not allowed).
I have been in gatherings of Shaykh Mohammed al-Yacoubi in which he has allowed photgraphs to be taken of him, and also a friend of mine had the opportunity to get his photo taken with the shaykh at a later time.
In regards to Shaykh Yusuf al-Qardawi, he is a sunni isnt he? Does he follow a mdhab? Is he a mujtahid? I really dont know much about him. Can we follow his fatawa?

Okay Jazakallah Khair for that bro Saleel... I didnt know that..
Reading the thread rite now inshallah...
Yes bro Abu Usama.. i read some of the q & a on sunnipath.. about how theres ikhtilaaf regarding photograph.. i guess i was looking for more in depth
i used to be a total photo no no.. last month or so i think ive bcome a little lax about the whole issue... its prolly my nafs :/
Anyways brother faraz rabbani has said that its more safer to follow the opinion that it isnt allowed...
