I have a video-game shop. Is my earnings Halal?

الاستفتاء

I have a videogame shop. Is my earnings from this shop Halal or Haram? There is no gambling in my shop nor do I steal electricity to run my shop. I also pay its rent fully. Please inform me about this.

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

If video games are not played with any stipulated conditions, but rather to relieve mental or bodily fatigue, and there is nothing in it which is prohibited by the Shari’ah, then it is allowed, and its earnings are also Halal for the questioner. However, it is not befitting for a Muslim to make a livelihood from play and amusement, In fact, he should adopt any other permissible means of livelihood.
And Allah knows best.
