What should a man who is a partner is a camera shop do?


There is a man who is a partner with another in a shop selling cameras. He has repented, so how can he end his partnership in such a way that he will not lose out? What is the ruling on the money he earns from this shop?.


Praise be to Allaah.

He should end the partnership by evaluating the worth of the shop contents and agreeing a deal with his partner. Whatever he gets from this deal is permissible for him, unless that includes pictures of animate beings or any other haraam images, in which case it is not permissible for him to keep that money, rather he should give it in charity.
