The act of sharing download files or download links of cracked software (which are not freely available) on your website, and the act of earning money off it, in my opinion, are haram, unless you have the permission (to share their software via download files or help share via download links) of the companies/publishers who develop and sell those software. ...

Developing payment software by itself is neither halal or haram - like manufacturing a knife... it depends how it is used exactly... IF you sell it to someone you know for a fact will use it in a haram way (like killing someone unlawfully for example) THEN the sale itself becomes haram. There is a principle in Islam that basically says if the outcome is ...

Someone asked Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen the similar question: The question was: Am I allowed to develop a website for a company and I know that they do some halal and some haram work ? So the sheikh replied: If most of the work which this company does is haraam, then it is not permissible for him to do that. If most of what they do is ...

WaS. There is no doubt that using pirated software is not allowed according to Islam, as it is basically stealing. Another rule in Islam is that you are answerable within your own "circle of control". Sahih Bukhari: 6719. 'Abdullah ibn Dinar related from 'Abdullah ibn 'Umar that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, ...

Using Photoshop is not haram but it matters that what are you doing on Photoshop if its allowed then its okay if its not allowed then its haram. Lets see this in this way that you can keep a knife or a gun in your home for safety but you cannot use it for committing murder. Just like that you can use Photoshop but for positive use. And there is no ...

(I am not sure why the question got so down-voted, I'll try my best at least to answer.) It was narrated that 'Umar bin Khattab said: "I heard the Messenger of Allah say: 'Whoever builds a mosque in which the Name of Allah is mentioned, Allah will build a house for him in Paradise.'" -- Sunan Ibn Majah 735 [grade: sahih] (sunnah.com) The apparent meaning ...

For reference, here's the Firefox logo: Even stricter scholars don't include "incomplete images" as haram, e.g., Islam Q&A wrote: It seems that images which do not have complete features, which do not have a nose or eyes, are not included under the heading of haraam images, and the ones who make them are not included in this warning, because ...

Let's start with some examples. Say you write a book. It took you 6 months to write and publish. I need to use some content from it. But I don't buy the book. Instead, I photocopy a few pages and use them. Will you like this if you knew what I did? Another one. Say you write a nice program like DreamWeaver. I get a copy of it (pirated), only because it's ...

From the logical analysis and dars-e-quran : It is not that you can't sell a Islamic software. Yes, you can. The printed Quran has been sold by the publishers since ages. Just to point out - various narrations/ translation of Quran by different Imam's are sold in hundreds of countries. Now about the verse Quran 2:41 - And believe in what I have sent ...

Being a software engineer, i am also now days having an offer of a related project, and i am trying my best to avoid it, and i believe supporting any sin is as bad as the sin itself... And ALlah says in Quran: "Indeed, those who like that immorality(فواحش) should be spread [or publicized] among believers will have a painful punishment in this world ...

It's not the app, it's what it's used for. This is analogous to asking is English haram? There are things one can say in English which are haram to say, but the English language is not the problem. Likewise, an app is not a problem in itself. Many Muslims routinely use non-Islamic apps like clocks, email apps, and document readers, along with Islamic ...

I've spoken with an Imam and Mufti about this. They said that this will have an affect in the afterlife for me, they told that this should be avoided. They said if I'll be creating a website for managing temples or I'll be sharing/transferring data it is wrong even if I won't be creating any of it but only writing a software to manipulate that it is still ...

Once you purchase a product, it's halal for you to dispose of your possession as you see fit, and the seller cannot place a condition on how you will or won't use your possession. Therefore a contract that attempts to limit what you can and can't do with the product after you purchase it is not enforceable Islamically. The only consideration would be the ...

Waalikumassalam! Lets say you make a vehicle that is sold to general public. 100 customers come to you and purchase the vehicles from you. If you make fake vehicles, then it is cheating and fraud and you are responsible for the consequences. If you use genuine parts for vehicles, then it is all right. Now, lets say, a customer comes next day and says that ...

The way I look at it is simple. Have you wronged the creators of the software by using it without paying? Imagine you are standing outside a bakers shop. You are hungry but you do not have the means to pay the baker, perhaps you forgot your wallet at home. Will you steal from the baker just because you have a need but do not have the means to pay for it? ...

Ask the owner of the software itself for permission and say you don't mind working as a beta tester if needed. Anything (no matter how small) taken without permission is haram and the owner can stop you and make you repay his losses on the Bridge to Paradise. I used to do the same but al-hamdu liAllah I never sold anything using pirated software and all my ...

Donation is exactly what is called Hibbah (هبه) in Islam. There's no problem giving donation from people (because they decide to donate by their own) and they can't ask to return money because you gave them the application instead of money. Reference: Tahrirol Vasilah pages 56 to 58

as i know, trading with disbelievers is allowed, and your case is like that, you are like making service to them, and your work does not involve selling haram food, though, you design software, it is for general logistic and you do not make front page images and slogans selling food... logistic soft can also be used for other purposes... and you are not paid ...

It could be related to the part in which you are working. Since as I found the viewpoint of Ayatollah Sistani, according to his ruling: In case working in the bank is in a part which is related to Rabawi transactions and somewhat be effective in fulfilling of that, then it is not permissible for him to work there. But working in the parts of the ...
