Referring clients to a gay competitor

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I do not stock a certain brand of permissible underwear products. When customers query regarding these products, I refer them to a non-Muslim competitor who stocks these brands. I have found out that this competitor is openly gay and has a husband. He also sells a number of lewd underwear products and gay lingerie. He does not have a physical store. His products are shipped to customers. Is it correct to refer people to purchase from such a person?


A: It is permissible.

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