প্রশ্ন : the process of earning YouTube is valid or not? like as increasing subscribe, viewer & get some dollar from youtube in this process are authentic (Jaej)?

উত্তর :

YouTube is a video (centred) related website. To record (video) and to see it (video) are haraam (illegitimate in sharia). Moreover, those who browse YouTube, according to them it’s almost impossible to come out of it (YouTube site) without sinning (i.e. watching indecent video clips or non-mahram ladies etc). Although there are some (good) audios but those are really insignificant. Therefore, it is not permissible to earn uploading videos or increasing the number of viewers and subscribers to this video related website. The ruling of all darul iftas including darul ulum deoband is as such. It is mentioned in the hadith shareef that-

“the severest of the punishment will be afflicted upon the ones that take pictures”

-Sohihul bukhari, hadith no 5950;Sohih muslim,hadith no 5647,5662.
