Slms. We have been approached by a brewery which also has halaal drinks division, to supply a variety of products, which includes vehicle parts, machinery parts and any product which requires searching and importing for the company. Is it jaiz to supply to this company and under what conditions?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

We commend you on your sensitivity to earn a halaal income. May Almighty Allah grant you Barakah in your income. Aameen.

Nabi (ﷺ) said:

طَلَبُ كَسْبِ الْحَلَالِ فَرِيضَةٌ بَعْدَ الْفَرِيضَةِ

Translation: Earning of Halal income is an obligation beyond other obligations.

(Shuabul Imaan/Sunan Al-kubra, Baihaqi)

In principle, if the products you are supplying has a dual purpose and can be used for permissible activities, then it is permissible to supply and market such products/parts for its permissible use.

Thereafter, if an individual or company uses the products/parts for any impermissible activity, the responsibility of the same will be solely upon the user. [1]

Accordingly, it is permissible to supply vehicle and machinery parts to the brewery.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
