I own an online business directory. So, all kinds of businesses register there and people searching for any kind of products & services come there to find their need. My question is:
- a) Is it okay to register a business that is haraam in our school of thought (eg. pork shop or alcohol shop)
- b) Is it okay to register a business, part of whose offerings are haraam in our school of thought (eg. a hotel that has a bar or a restaurant that serves alcohol or a desert safari that has belly dance included)
- c) My revenue comes not from registering, but from paid advertisement from businesses. Can I accept paid ads from the above two categories?
It prohibited to sell alcohol or to promote the selling and consumption of alcohol, or anything else that is haram.
Further to that, if one thinks of one's mission in life as including 'amr b'il-ma'ruf wa nahy 'an al-munkar, then one should actively prevent the advertising and promotion of anything that is harmful.
