I am a software engineer in India and striving Muslim. Recently I got new job offer from a company and after all the legal clarification, I accepted the job offer. But recently I heard from my friend the company also does work for a pornography website. My work is not going to relate with that in any manner but that company do the work in that field.

Please suggest me with the authentic hadith or Quran Ayath. Should I work with them or not?


"I already ask the co. that I am not going to support any HARAM work in any manner either directly or indirectly. and they are agree with term and condition. Hope I am clear. "

So this job of your not in condition of haram. As you said you are living in a country which is not ruled by Islamic rules. You can prevent yourself from involving haram but you can not change or force every people.

As you said

"Every work have some HARAM component"

If you dig enough, you can possible find a thing or stuff which is considered as haram in Islam. In your case, you did declare your working conditions within Islam and they agreed. In this perspective it's okay to work with them.

  • brother, please try to add reference from Quran and Sunnah when you give answers. – user12159 Sep 17 '16 at 5:18

Its impossible a submited person being a leader of a pornography company since we have the advise to not accept desires as deities, pornography promotes exactly that 25:43 The hypocrit answer is saying technically yes if the persons in this company are all submited to God. Lets not be fool here. 4:43, 4:44

Have you seen the one who takes as his god his own desire? Then would you be responsible for him? Or do you think that most of them hear or reason? They are not except like livestock. Rather, they are [even] more astray in [their] way.

In my view the one of the main Messages is encouraging you, to submit yourself to God accepting its Revelation, and if you are submited, you must follow the Book and take in consideration its warnings and stories, since even a true muslim has its journey full of tests and rewards.


[This is] so that the People of the Scripture may know that they are not able [to obtain] anything from the bounty of Allah and that [all] bounty is in the hand of Allah ; He gives it to whom He wills. And Allah is the possessor of great bounty.

With that idea in mind we can use some math to make comparasions a way can balance companies that are very worst, more less worst or better than worst companies. And we can even think that pornography its a way to make desbelievers astray. Since He guides or the inverse who He wants.


Is He [not best] who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him and removes evil and makes you inheritors of the earth? Is there a deity with Allah ? Little do you remember.

The Quran explicitly denies adultery 4:15, and God rules in the Book the way that woman should present in public in a form that would be hypocrit to think that its right working in the pornographic industry, I think pornography increases the some sort of adultery in a global scale as its informed here, and you can measure adultery in the same way that you can measure if its better to work in this or that company .

Those who commit unlawful sexual intercourse of your women - bring against them four [witnesses] from among you. And if they testify, confine the guilty women to houses until death takes them or Allah ordains for them [another] way.


It is Allah who created the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them in six days; then He established Himself above the Throne. You have not besides Him any protector or any intercessor; so will you not be reminded?

Remind, reflect, above certain topics with the help of the Revelation and submit yourself and fear only God. If you are a muslim remind yourself that God gived to you science and you should reflect and choose what you will do with that science, because He warned you about the Day Of Resurrection:


Indeed, your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ.


I think it's wrong to work related to this we should prevent ourselves the rizk is upto allah so believe in allah and avoid doing this.
