Earning from transporting Haram

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Aslam o Alaikum Dear brother,
We have contract with few Adult companies. We warehouse and deliver there adult material i.e. porn videofilms, magazines etc and charge customers for our warehouse and delivery service. I want to make sure is it permissible in Shariah? JAZAK ALLAH


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

The income itself will be permissible. However, there will be sin for assisting with wrong.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best


Ismail Moosa (Mufti)


إذا استأجر الرجل حمالاً ليحمل له خمراً، فله الأجر في قول أبي حنيفة، وقال أبو يوسف ومحمد: لا أجر له. (المحيط البرهاني (7 481)

لو أن مسلما آجر نفسه ليعمل في الكنيسة و يعمرها لا بأس به لأنه لا معصية في عين العمل (فتاوى قاضيخان (3/ 330)

إذا استأجر ذمي دابة من مسلم أو سفينة لينقل عليها الخمر جاز في قول أبي حنيفة رحمه الله تعالى وقال صاحباه لا يجوز (الفتاوى الهندية – 4/ 449)
