Can I Use My Movie Website to Promote Halal Products?

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Assalam ‘aleykum,

I have a movies and songs website, something similar to Youtube.

1. I own an e-commerce website for which I display adverts on the movie website.

2. I am affiliated with Amazon and some Halal businesses to promote their halal products on my movie website taking an agreed commission on their sales.

Is my income permissible?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

I pray that you are well, insha’Allah.

The income you receive from your e-commerce website is permitted and lawful for you.

As for the “movies and songs” website, you should be wary of allowing impermissible content on there.
