Is it permissible for a person to open a business in the vicinity of a casino? The business is separate and part of a kids and entertainment area. Its customers are the kids and families who visit this entertainment centre. It represents that of a shopping mall but adjacent to that casino.
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh
It is not advisable to open a business in such an area.
And Allah knows best
