Answered by: Mufti Javed ibn Nazir Kachhalia
I blog and post pictures, sometimes brands give me affiliate codes that my readers/audiences can use to get a discount at checkout online through this I earn a commission. Is it halaal? If I write a post or take pictures showcasing/using makeup products to promote them, but the actual money comes from when people purchase the product (not getting paid to take pictures/videos)? I know picture themselves are debatable, but I’m talking about my earnings are they halaal?
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
In regards to your query; this issue has been discussed on our website at the following link:
All the information has been discussed, in a nutshell, the earning is halal and permissible.
Only Allah knows best.
