Designing tickets for UnIslamic Shows

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Assalaamu Alaikum Mufti

I have a question??

I’m a graphic artist and I’ve been asked to design a ticket for an Indian Cultural Show. Is this permissible to do? There are no alcoholic sponsors… just the date/time/performers/venue.



Wa Alaikum Assalaam,

الجواب و بالله التوفيق

It is not permissible for you to design such a ticket, since it is a direct way to invite towards a thing which is haram in Islam. Although there are no alcoholic sponsors, the Indian Cultural Show itself is not permissible, and the ticket is the way of inviting and encouraging people to attend it.

And Allah Knows Best.
