Official authorities committing prohibited acts

Q 1 and 2: It is said that all types of singing are prohibited; if this is true, why do official authorities permit opening up stores that sell them and broadcasting them in (Part No. 26; Page No. 274) Radio, Television, and the like.They also state that photography is prohibited; nevertheless, we see photographers taking photos of people, printing and enlarging them, and so on.

A: Practicing unlawful matters by ministries, organizations, or individuals is not a proof its permissibility, for humans are not infallible. However, Allah's Ruling should be clarified to them and they should be advised so as to establish the proof against them and remove the excuse.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
