Question

Salamu Alaikum.I'm about to create a website
which will promote houses/property for sale
on the internett.The advertisers will be
property agencies which will advertise their
portefolio of properties for sale on my
website.Knowing that some of the users from
my website may take up loan/ribaa to aquire
the promoted houses/property on my
website,And addition to that,knowing that
the property market are heavily involved
with buyers who take up loan/
ribaa.Therefore,will my website encourage
and contribute to trangress the shariah??
Salaam alaikum...

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.
Designing a website which advertises
properties is permissible in principle and
taking money on this work is lawful.
As regards the prohibition which you
mentioned in the question, it does not
prevent from designing the website. The
website designer is not sinful if some people
who benefit from his services buy the houses
and properties through a Riba based loan
(interest and/or usury) and he is not
considered as helping them in Riba or
causing it as long as this website is not
advertising for banks which deal with Riba or
for Riba based transactions.

Allah Knows best.
