The Sale or Rental of Video Tapes
Question:

What is the ruling regarding the sale or rental of videos, which at the very least, contain scenes of unveiled women and stories of passion and lust. Is the wealth of a person who deals in the sale of these videos unlawful, and what should that person do to rid himself of both the videos and the machines used to record them?
Answer:

Since these videos both glorify and invite people to moral temptations and corruption, it is forbidden to watch or listen to them. In order to protect the Muslims, it is the obligation of whoever has these videos, to destroy them. And with Allaah is the facilitation to do what is right.
