Selling music CDs to non-Muslims

Fatwaa ID: 629

Salaams – Are we allowed to sell music CD to non muslims?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Just as it is not permissible for one to engage in prohibited acts, it is also not permissible to facilitate for others to engage in prohibited acts. The one who facilitates or assists in doing something is equivalent to the one who does it. Accordingly, it is not permissible to sell music CDs to Muslims and non-Muslims. One will be sinful for selling such items and also each time someone uses the CDs.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
