Is a job relating to TV licences permissible in Islam

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah


If company A has a contract with company B where company A does work on behalf of them (outsourcing). The work is about TV licensing (take queries/collect debt from customers and input data for customers who want a new license). You are not selling/promoting anything, Is it permissible to work for this company?



The Islamic principle is that something, which may be used for lawful purposes, is permissible to sell. (Taqrir Tirmizi p.221 v.1 & Takmilah Fathul Mulhim p.551 v.1)

Televisions can be used for a permissible aspect i.e. watching an Islamic programme, therefore, it would not be considered totally forbidden. Therefore, the aforementioned job would be considered lawful.
