Is income earned from a website with Google ads halal or haram?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
First of all I want to know whether it is halal or haram to run a website. Is the income earned from the website halal or haram? Also, I run Google ads on my website which shows different ads in picture as well as in text format. Every time it shows ads automatically. When someone clicks on them, I get paid. So my question is that if the ads shown are in picture format i.e. the picture of human beings shown on my website and some one clicks on them and I get paid, is it halal or haram? And I do not know what ads are shown to every person, in every part of the world it shows different ads to different persons like in USA and India they are different, so there may be ads related to anything like beauty, TV, gambling etc. It is showed by Google my website only is used as a place. Is the income earned through such ads halal or haram?


(Fatwa: 1378/845/H=1432)

Publishing haram pictures and transferring them via websites or receiving them from others and doing it as a business is obviously unlawful and sin. But, the pictures that are not haram their business is not haram and sin.
