Earning by teaching to children of dish TV distributor is halal or haram? I am teaching Quran in Saudi Arab to children, but my student’s father is working in a Dish TV company or he is cable/dish TV distributor which is haram. So, I am doubtful whether my earning from him (after teaching his children) is haram or halal? Kindly reply. I am waiting.

In the abovementioned case if your student’s father has income sources other than the income you mentioned then you should tell him that he must give you the salary from halal income or by borrowing money from someone. If he is not ready for the same then you must not teach his children on fee, rather look for someone else where you could get halal salary.

Allah knows Best!
