Using paid WordPress plug-ins which one received for free

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am creating / developing my ecommerce store (on wordpress) selling various products online. It requires some Plugins / Extensions to be installed which are PAID. I am enrolled in a course (on Udemy) where my tutor gave me all those (required) plugins for FREE to use them on my own ecommerce site.

P.S: I don’t know whether my tutor owns them or he grabbed them from somewhere else. I did sent him an email asking that but haven’t heard from him. If I use those plugins on my site, and the income which will be generated from my store will be Halal or Haram? Can you please guide me on this?


A: If he allowed you to use it is permissible.

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