As a medical students, we have to buy a lot of expensive foreign medical books. For a middle class student it is very difficult to afford these books. can they use pirated books published in soem Asian/African countries? Can I make a copy from the books, CDs Videos etc that I have purchased for my friends without any gain, or for myself as a back-up copy?
Kindly refer copyright If copying the books, etc. for the intended purpose does not violate the terms and conditions of copyright, then it will be permissible. and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best Mufti Ebrahim Desai FATWA DEPT.
