Is it permissible to take an ad from google


1)in google Adsense, google asks ad-owner to bet for advertisement. suppose company A bet $5, B $3 and c $1 for advertising.Then google takes the highest bet company at $5. and give this $5 ad to a client(here I am the client). google keeps 50%, that is $2.50. is it permissible to take an ad from google? 

2)I have a leather belt watch. In the belt it is written that "Genuine leather". But I don't know what animal leather is used here. Most of the leather product we use in Bangladesh don't mention the animal name. what is the ruling for my watch and these leather product?


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

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

1)    Your question is not clear. Explain the procedure of AdSense in detail.

2)    You may enquire from the manufacture on the source of the leather. If the leather is from pig, it will be prohibited. If it is from another source, it will be permissible.[1]

[1] صحيح مسلم (1/ 277(

حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ يَحْيَى، أَخْبَرَنَا سُلَيْمَانُ بْنُ بِلَالٍ، عَنْ زَيْدِ بْنِ أَسْلَمَ، أَنَّ عَبْدَ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنَ وَعْلَةَ، أَخْبَرَهُ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ: «إِذَا دُبِغَ الْإِهَابُ فَقَدْ طَهُرَ»

السعاية في كشف ما في شرح الوقاية (ص: 424)

كل اهاب دبغ فقد طهر وجاز الانتفاع به الا جلد الخنزير والادمي....

بدائع الصنائع - ث (1/ 85)

وَمِنْهَا الدِّبَاغُ لِلْجُلُودِ النَّجِسَةِ فَالدِّبَاغُ تَطْهِيرٌ لِلْجُلُودِ كُلِّهَا إلَّا جِلْدَ الْإِنْسَانِ وَالْخِنْزِيرِ كَذَا ذَكَرَ الْكَرْخِيُّ.

فتاوی عثمانی – جلد (1/318)

دباغت، خنزیر اور آدمی کے علاوہ تمام جانوروں کی کھالوں کو دھوپ میں رکھ کر یا نمک لگا کر مدبوغ کر لیا جاۓ تو وہ پاک ہو جاتی ہیں­-
