Running a T-shirt printing business

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by TheMufti.com

Q. I run a T-shirt printing business. I buy plain T-shirts, print on it and sell it to schools, colleges, hospitals, hotels, small business owners, etc. Can I print T-shirts of people, cartoon characters, mobile phones, symbols, buildings, logos, slogans, taglines, business names, trees, plants and flowers?


A. It is permissible to run a T-shirt business if the T-shirts printed do not contain any animation. Therefore, in the enquired situation, it would be permissible for you to print T-shirts of mobile phones, symbols, buildings, logos, slogans, taglines, business names, trees, plants and flowers so long as they do not contain any impermissible elements.

Hence, it will not be permissible for you to print T-shirts of people or animate cartoon characters.
