Bismillahi Taʿālā

Assalāmu ʿalaykum waraḥmatullāhī wabrakātuh,

Please find your answers below:

YouTube: If the adverts that you display on your sharʿan permissible video are also sharrʿan acceptable, then your income will be permissible. However, if you cannot change the type of adverts that appear on your YouTube video, then you should avoid earning from their advertisement.

Online Surveys: As long as, the content of these surveys is permissible, and you are not making phony users and responses to fill out many surveys, the income will be permissible.

Installing App: If the App itself is permissible, and you get some affiliate income from installing it, then the income will be permissible.

Similarly, other such avenues of Google Adwords, Adsense etc for your blogs are all permissible as long as you tweak them to display sharʿan acceptable ads.

And Allāh Taʿālā Knows best,

Wassalamu ʿalaykum,
