Question:

Assalamualykom..I am very much worried about a topic..
1-If I develop a billing software for supermarket which is used to calculate price based on bar code and software have some other option. Some time it is needed to add payment method in the software . This method gives customer the opportunity to pay with debit or credit card.Is it halal to make this kind of software which allows payment via credit card??
2-If I work in a company which develop website for halal business.But in some website they add picture of women.Pic number or size is very lower than other features of the website. My work is Just coding part and others will add picture then is my work haram?

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

1- Your job is to develop the software which main usage is permissible, to facilitate the payment for the products. Payment by a credit card is generally permissible and there will be no Haraam element in this aspect of your job.

2- Adding pictures of women to the websites is impermissible and must be avoided. You must ensure that your job in no way entails the production of the images.  If your job is just the coding with no involvement in the pictures then it will be permissible.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
