Question

 

Assalamu Alaikum. Have you had the chance to review my query for a television wall mounting job?

 

 

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

 

Answer:

 

The Prophet PBUH said, "Nobody has ever eaten a better meal than that which one has earned by working with one's own hands. The Prophet of Allah, Dawood used to eat from the earnings of his own manual labour." [Sahih Bukhari 2072]

 

The Islamic guideline is that something which may be used for lawful objectives is permissible to sell.[1]

 

Televisions can be used for a permissible objective i.e. watching Islamic Programmes, participating in live recitation developing shows etc. Therefore, the usage of television would not be considered totally forbidden.

Therefore, the job of television wall mounting would be considered lawful and halal.
