Online advertising

Q: Please clarify the following for me:

Generally, companies run through advertising and it thus plays a major part of many businesses. Therefore:

1. Some people specialise in doing the marketing/advertising for the company and get paid for their services.

2. Some people with computer abilities upload such ads on websites and get paid by the companies.

Are these types of jobs impermissible? If so, will magazines, radio stations etc. charging people for advertising also be impermissible?

A: If they are advertising for halaal products and rendering a service then it is permissible to receive a remuneration for the service offered.

For further details, refer to

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
