Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam
Question: Asalamualaykum,
Is it permissible to own a business that buys and sells Bollywood movies?
Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.
The Holy Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Modesty is a branch of faith.” [Bukhari]
Considering the overwhelming amount of impermissible material found in such content, and the harms that can and do often arise from viewing it, it would be unbefitting for a Muslim who cares about his religion to start a business encouraging or even aiding the distribution and access to such content.
If you leave something for the sake of Allah, Allah will facilitate something far better.
And Allah alone gives success.
