In this digital age., more and more people are using social media to make money. One of these is becoming a you tuber. My kids daughter 6 years of age and son 10 years of age are watching these parents with theirs kids on you tube, in which they started to tell me if we could create one and make money on this platform. Is it alright or permissible to make money by recording videos of my 2 kids and posting them on YouTube?
Wa alaykum assalamu wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh.
In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-Giving.
All praise is due to Allah. Peace and blessings be upon His Messenger Muhammad.
It is permissible to make money from such videos provided that:
1- The video content is not prohibited by the Shariah.
2- The ads displayed on your videos do not involve or promote contents prohibited by the Shariah. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “He who calls for guidance will get the same reward as the rewards of those who follow him without their rewards being diminished in the least. And he who calls for misguidance will be as sinful as those who follow him without their sins diminished in the least.” (Muslim)
3- You pay nothing for subscription.
Allah knows best.
