If as a freelancer, one does not do any kind of work that is unacceptable

الاستفتاء

How should one earn money? There are some websites through which foreigners give work to people from Pakistan, like making company logos or web designing, through online freelancing, then they pay us for our work. Please provide the answer to this question. Jazakallah.

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

Working as a freelancer falls under the category of “اجیر مشترک” (Sheared Worker) in Contracts of Leasing, which is permissible according to the Sharia. If as a freelancer, one does not do any kind of work that is unacceptable according to the Sharia, then this is permissible for him and his payment will also be lawful “حلال”, under the condition that his payment, task and work period be specified.
And Allah knows best.
