Q: I’m planning to enter a skit competition and I’m planning to use copyrighted music in the skit. If I do win the competition, Is the money I’ve won considered as haraam?
A: Don’t ever get into such a competition. Ask Allah’s forgiveness for even intending to go into such a wrong competition.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
