Ask an Alim

Is freelancing halal or haram?

Q:

Freelancing is not used for anything haram but only involves video editing and photoshop of only men (no non mahram women) and is done for no haram product only for things that are halal according to islam and graphic designing of halal products only with no haram interference. Is the money coming from freelancing is halal or haram? Kindly explain.

Freelancing majorly involves providing any service to someone online like video editing photoshop graphic and web designing etc.

A:

In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.

Wa-Alaykum Assalam Wa Rahmtu-Allah,
There is nothing to suggest freelancing is Haram, it is a form of self employment and you are advertising your services on a platform.
