I want to find out that is selling facebook zynga poker chips is haram or not. We buy chips at cheap rate and sell at profitable price is it haram or halal?
playing poker game is haram i know that but does it even include buying and selling of chips too.
There is always risk if zynga or facebook ban our useraccount We will lose the chips.
On facebook.com these poker chips are listed as entertainment points But they sell it too but at very high rates.
As i tried alot to find about it and couldnt thats why im here.
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّمَا الْخَمْرُ وَالْمَيْسِرُ وَالْأَنصَابُ وَالْأَزْلَامُ رِجْسٌ مِّنْ عَمَلِ الشَّيْطَانِ فَاجْتَنِبُوهُ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ ﴿٩٠﴾
O you who have believed, indeed, intoxicants, gambling, [sacrificing on] stone alters [to other than Allah], and divining arrows are but defilement from the work of Satan, so avoid it that you may be successful. (90)
poker and gambling are haram and anything that has to do with them is haram ,lets take the word avoid it has been said to avoid alchol for example but that doesn't mean u can sell it it is haram and to be avoided (not just don't drink but avoided for u will be lured to , so u don't sit in a place where it is being served) another example in the very begining when Allah created Adam and Eve he didn't say don't eat from the tree but said avoid , so don't come near it so apply that in the alcohol and poker .
and really without even saying all that u r helping people to do something haram u r participating in it of course it is haram.
