Mobile games and music

Q: I have formed a company of programmers and developers to develop mobile games and applications. There are three sources of revenue:

  1. Sell the game.
  2. Make it free and gain revenue from advertisements in the applications and games.
  3. Keep it partly free and partly Under sale. (In app purchase)

I have kept in mind not to put any vulgar or obsolete or beparda concept and things in my products. Music will be used as background play. Is the revenue earned clean and clear?


A: Music is haraam in Islam. Hence one should refrain from this type of involvement.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
