Be a Cable TV Operator is Prohibited or Lawful

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
I am a Cable Operator. My job is to supply TV Channels to various homes in my colony. So please kindly tell me if my work is haram or halal or ja’iz or naja’iz.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 914/930/L=07/1436)

It is unalwful to supply TV channels. It is helping in sin which the Holy Quran has disallowed. Allah says:
وَتَعَاوَنُواْ عَلَى الْبرِّ وَالتَّقْوَى وَلاَ تَعَاوَنُواْ عَلَى الإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ [المائدة : 2]

Allah knows Best!
