  • This post has some relevance islam.stackexchange.com/questions/35488/…. I'd say once you know the purpose or use for the material you are at least partly involved. In that case it is rather frowned upon or even considered as haram unless you are in a non-Muslim country in that case at least you are asked to fulfill your contracts legacy.quran.com/5/1...

1 Answer 1


Surah Al-Maidah , Ayah # 2:

تعاونوا على البر والتقوى ولا تعاونوا على الإثم والعدوان

Cooperate in righteousness and piety, but do not cooperate in sin and and transgression

Building a temple where shirk happens and idols are worshiped is sin and transgression. Shirk is actually the biggest sin.
