Earning online through Link Shortener sites

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My question is about online earning. Is earning with Link Shortener sites halaal?

Link Shortener sites shorten our links and put ads on it. Whenever someone click on that link, he first see’s ads then he goes to the real site. These sites put ads on our links and pay us. When people see the ads, it makes revenue and sites share revenue with us. So is this earning halal or haram?


A: It is alright.

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