Bug Bounty | Halal or Haram

Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh


You may work in finding security bugs even if there are female photos as long as they are free of nudity and obscene pictures.


As a Muslim, we need to ask whether the work we do is ethical and helping promote virtue or is it promoting or condoning corruption and vice.


The Prophet, peace be upon him, said, “There are among people those who serve as keys to virtue and locks to evil and corruption; then there are those who are keys to corruption and vice and locks to virtue. So, blessed are those who serve as keys to virtue and locks to corruption.”


I pray to Allah to bless us to serve as keys to virtue and locks to corruption and vice in the world.


So, if you do think your work may end up promoting vice and corruption, you should not consider such a job.


You should pray to Allah to bless your efforts in finding a job that is free of vices.

Here is a du’a you may use for seeking Allah’s help:


Allaahumma aghninee  bi halaalika an haraamika wa bi ta’atika an ma’siyathika wa bi fadlika amman siwaaka


(O Allah, make me content with what You have made halal for me so that I do not turn to that which is Haraam, and make me satisfied with Your obedience so that I am not coerced to disobey you and make me content with Your favor so that I do not need to look for favors of mortals.”


Almighty Allah knows best.
