Question: Driving Cab Uber

ID: 852

Name: Permissible and Impermissible


Assalam-o-alaikum Wrwb

I have 2 questions;
1- I would like to know driving UBER  or any cab is halal, because as a driver you have to take people to Haram places (Bar, Nigh clubs etc) , by driving and taking them to those places, are we a part of Sin?

“Help you one another in Al‑Birr and At‑Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression”

[al-Maa’idah 5:2] 


2-I would like to start some business like Store / gas station, I need to know is it halal to sell Cigrates and Cigars or become a partner to someone who owns that Store / gas station?

Jazakomullaho Khairan

الجواب وبالله التوفيق

 It is permissible to drive taxi and Uber. By dropping such passengers off, the driver does not become an accomplice in their actions. The person engaging in haram acts is the one responsible for it not the person who is dropping them off at a location.


وجاز حمل خمر ذمہ بنفسہ او دابتہ (الدر المختار) قال الزیلعی و ھذا عندہ۔۔۔

ولہ ان الا جارۃ علی الحمل وھو لیس بمعصیۃ ولا سبب لھا وانما تحصل المعصیۃ بفعل فاعل مختار

(کتاب النوازل، بحوالہ الدرالمحتار، مع الشافی، ص271،  ج12)

مستفاد: اذا استاجر رجل لیحمل لہ خمرا فلہ الاجر فی قول ابی حنیفہؒ(کتاب النوازل بحوالہ فتاوی ھندیہ، ص271، ج12

واللہ اعلم  بالصواب
