Earning using Islamic Videos


Assalamualaikum, Hope you are well. My question is, is it Halal to earn income by uploading Islamic lectures of male scholars? Basically, on YouTube, if you upload videos, you are allowed to run ads on them (I have blocked ads that contain sinful content such as banks, music, movies, loans, riba, etc.). If someone clicks on that ad, the uploader gets paid by YouTube (the payment is very low – couple of cents in a day). If I upload videos of male Islamic scholars delivering lectures (which they have allowed to be shared online), will the money I receive from the ads running on those videos be Halal?


Alaykum Salaam

Yes, as long as they have allowed their videos to be placed online

Kind regards
