Clarification regarding a job description

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Assalamu alaikum Mufti Sahab.

I work for drawdeck.com where we sell online art pieces. Artists send us their work and get a commission if their art is sold. I handle the website and all technical aspects. As you can see, the website sells inanimate as well as animate arts. Is this job halaal for me?

Jazak Allah for your help.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Your question is not clear. In order for us to advise you, please forward us the exact nature and description of the job position.

What do you mean by “technical aspects?” Do you only design the website, work as an IT technician etc. or does the job also require you to upload the art (the animate art) onto the website? Please explain clearly in detail.
