Assalamu Alyakum

I am using several pirated software in my PC can you advice me whether this is allowed in Islam

Pirated Software

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His  forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Islam and the Shariah Law protects the rights of the person or company who develops or invents a product and his right to benefit from that product in a just way. If some person or company has strived to invent something, then it is their right to market and benefit from that product. If someone steals that product and uses it without the permission of the company or person who invented it, then it would be deemed illegal in Islamic Law, and would indeed be considered a sin in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.



Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
