Buying illustrated magazines

A: First: It is impermissible to trade in obscene magazines containing pictures of women showing their beauty and charms as they are means to spread corruption and evil. In fact, means have the same rulings as the ends. Moreover, those trading therein actually cooperate with their editors in their work which is a grave sin and a great crime. Allah (Exalted be He) prohibited cooperation in sin and transgression. Allah (Exalted be He) says, ...but do not help one another in sin and transgression. (Part No. 13; Page No. 77)  Second: Thank Allah (Exalted be He) for helping you know and follow the truth. Be persistent on it and stick to it. Moreover, continue in calling your relatives to Allah with wisdom, good words, and kind language. Moreover, you should be kind to them and endure with patience all that might hurt you while trying to do so in the hope that Allah might guide them. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
