    Title: Halal & Haram

    Question: I have business of ceramic Stoneware manufacturing (Cups, Mugs, Plates etc). We got an order of ceramic bottle from America, we delivered this order, they are using these bottles for selling Wine, we know this thing from the beginning that they are going to use these bottles for filling wine. We already delivered one order. Now they are giving order for next one year. Please tell me is it haram or halal for me to do this work.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 721/686/SN=10/1436) Bottle is a worthful thing and it can contain any pure and halal thing as it may contain wine. Hence it is lawful to manufacture the bottle and sell it in itself though the buyer sells wine in it. But in the above mentioned case being a Muslim it is not better for you since you know that wine shall be sold in it; thus it in some way is helping in sins. Hence you should avoid from it in future. It is recorded in Dur al-Mukhtar: وقدمنا ثمة معزيا للنهر أن ما قامت المعصية بعينه يكره بيعه تحريما، وإلا فتنزيها، فليحفظ توفيقا – إلى آخر....رد المحتار ، 9/ 561، ط زكريا)
