My question is regarding business of mobile accessories

Question

Assalamualikum,

My question is regarding business of mobile accessories. I am currently selling mobile phone accessories like screen protectors, memory cards, handsfree, memory card readers.

I want to ask as nowadays memory cards are used to download movies / film songs etc. and handsfree are used to listen songs, can i sell these goods. Do islamic law forbid selling them?

Answer

Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

 

In principle, it is permissible to sell items which have dual or multiple purposes. Memory cards and hands-free can be used for permissible things as well as for sin. Hence, it will be permissible for you to sell such accessories. If it is used to download or listen to Haraam, the sin will be upon the consumer and not on you.
