Selling TV sets

Egypt's Dar Al-Ifta

Selling TV sets


What is the ruling for selling TV sets inside Egypt? As you know, nowadays most of the broadcasted material is neither good nor beneficial but is rather the opposite.


TV sets are tools that help viewers follow events and news taking place in near and distant countries. Moreover, they allow viewers access satellite channels broadcasting a variety of material which includes both that is good and substandard. The viewer is the one who decides what to watch.
It is established in Islamic law that everything is permissible provided it is not explicitly declared prohibited.

The ruling

Based on this, it is permissible to buy and sell anything that can be used for either purpose (lawful and prohibited) and the responsibility of usage lies upon the user. If he uses it in permissible ways, then it is permissible and if he uses it in impermissible ways, it is impermissible.

The above answers the question and Allah the Almighty knows best.
