Is it permissible for a muslim to work as technical support agent for a TV broadcasting company that provides channels including NC-17?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātu
The evils of T.V broadcasting are well known. The technical support to the T.V broadcasting will be directly aiding the T.V broadcasting which is not permissible. Allah Ta’ala says in the Holy Quran:
وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ
And do not assist one another in sin and aggression. And fear Allah; indeed, Allah is severe in penalty. [Al-Qur’ān; 5:2]
And Allāh Ta῾āla Knows Best
