Producing Travel Videos
Fatwa No: 378118

Question

I want to make a youtube channel for traveling videos like when i visit a country i will make videos of the nature, beaches ( obviously not any haraam scene ) , airlines food/seat etc. Is it permissible for me to make such videos and earn some money ? My travelling won't be just for fun/tourism but other purposes . but if anyone go there just for tourism by watching my videos will i be a sinner for that?

Answer

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 ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

There is no objection on your production of what you called travel videos in the manner that you mentioned; hence, there is no harm on posting them on your YouTube channel to make profit from them.

If a person goes to those countries, you are not sinful for his travel if he disobeys Allah; his sin falls upon himself only. Allah Says (what means): {And no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another.} [Quran 17:15]

Allah knows best.
