The World Federation One Stop Fiqh

Ruling 2075

The buying and selling of unlawful instruments of entertainment is not permitted. As for instruments that can be used for lawful or unlawful purposes, such as radios, recorders, and video players, there is no problem in buying and selling them, and it is permitted to keep them when one is confident (i.e. has iṭmiʾnān) that he and his family will not use them in unlawful ways.
