Is Youtube advertisement revenue permissible?

Question

Assalam o alaikum,

I want to ask Mr. Javed Ghamidi if its allowed to earn money through YouTube ads? Is this earning halal?


Answer

wa alaikumussalaam

There appears to be nothing wrong in earning from youtube ads. What I will suggest is to alter the settings in the adsense account in a way that ads of a specific nature or from specific categories like adult ads etc. are not displayed on your youtube videos. Rest is fine.

Regards,
