Question

He says: we work in a computer workshop fixing equipment. A machine was brought to us to be fixed, and we discovered that it is full of naked pictures. Should we refuse to fix it, or should we fix the computer, erase the pictures and advise the person?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

We put this question to our Shaykh, Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthyameen (may Allaah preserve him), who answered as follows:  I think you should tell the person, we will not fix it – because if you fix it and erase the pictures, he will  only put new ones in it. So do not fix it. And Allaah knows best.
