Name of website does not affect ruling on buying from it
Fatwa No: 357832


Assalaamu alaykum. Is haram? The reason I am asking is because it is named after the Amazon river, and the Amazon river is named after a pagan story. Does this mean that is haram? And if so, do I have to get rid of the stuff I bought from there?


All perfect praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

There is no relation whatsoever between the ruling on buying products from a website and what you mentioned about the origin of its name, assuming that it is correct. The name of the website has no effect on the ruling on buying from it. This matter is clear and does not need investigation. In fact, such a question seems to be almost entirely based on Waswasah (obsessive/devilish doubts) and unnecessarily overburdening yourself. We advise you to refrain from it.

Allah knows best.
