Hope You're doing well. I'm a website owner and I received multiple emails for sponsor posts in which some client need to put casino, gambling and betting links in existing and new articles. I want to know that placing these links is haram or not?

Looking forward to hearing,

Kind Regards, Rizwan Ali

Assalamu alaikum, putting links to gambling websites is totally haram! You are encouraging people to gamble this way and you should decline these offers since it goes against Islam. Doing this can give you many sins, people could log into your website and click these sponsors and start gambling. You will get sins since they acted upon what you guided them towards and each time someone does it, you get a part of the guilt.

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever calls to guidance will have a reward similar to those who follow him, without detracting from their rewards at all. Whoever calls to misguidance will have sin upon him similar to those who follow him, without detracting from their sins at all.”

So please, avoid doing this and focus on what's right.

  • Thank You so much for your concern response. Now I'll reject all email related to gambling and casino. May ALLAH forgive us from all sins what we have done before.
