Web designer advertising TV’s on clients websites

Q: I design websites . I have a Muslim client who I have designed an ecommerce website for. He sells Laptops and desktops and has one item which is TV’S . Can I add TV’S to his website? Will it be permissible for me to do this? He says that he sells TV’s to clients who use it for marketing (Restaurants etc.) and CCTV?


A: Pictures of all animate objects are forbidden in Islam. Hence it is impermissible for you to help him advertise and sell such a product as you will be supporting him in the sin.

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