Selling material to a church?

Recommended Posts

Question and Answer:
Q. Can we sell material that will be used to make church clothing? We sell these plain white sheets that are multipurpose but some people buy it and make church clothes from it.
 (Query published as received)
A. The Fuqahaa have mentioned that items that have dual purposes (permissible and impermissible) are permissible to sell and the seller is not responsible for the misuse of the purchaser. For example, grapes have a dual purpose. A person may purchase grapes to eat it or may purchase it to press and make wine. It is permissible to sell the grapes and the seller will not be responsible for the misuse of the purchaser. Likewise, it is permissible to sell such material in question as it has multiple purposes. The seller will not be sinful if the purchaser uses the material to make clothing for the church.
