Opening a sports club for snooker

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I want to start a par time business. But prior starting I want to make sure what I am going to is Halaal. I am planning to Open a Sports Club, Mainly Snooker with no betting / gambling allowed and prohibited. In this situation if this is a fair business? As Snooker is becoming a international Game and Pakistan have Won world championship , so I want to promote this decent game. Please guide me and give your suggestion.


A: We strongly discourage this type of activities. Muslims value their time. They are not like kaafirs who have no value for their wealth, time, and person.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
