Q: I had purchased a computer from a shop. There are a few software which are not genuine. They are pirated version like windows etc. So is it permissible to use such software? We use this computer for our work, so will our income be lawful?
A: The income is lawful.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
