Generally speaking, media is merely a means that can be used to reach good goals and noble objectives, or to spread corruption and evil thoughts. Thus, the ruling on work in this field varies from one case to another. It depends on the nature of this work and the role you play in it.

Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada , states: Radio, television, newspaper, video, etc. are all forms of media. Like all media, they cannot be considered either haram or halal by themselves. For such a judgment will depend on the purpose they are used for. If they are used for promoting truth, justice, ethics and morals, etc., they are considered noble. In such cases, it may fall under the category of obligatory or recommended or simply permissible. If, on the other hand, they are used for promoting vices, corruption, loose morals, permissiveness, hedonism, et cetera, they are considered forbidden.

So you must ask yourself the question: What kind of a job are you undertaking and what is your role in it? Are you being used as an instrument of sowing corruption and vices in society, or are you being used as an instrument of promoting good, contributing beneficial things to society? If the latter is the case, you should try to stick to this job unless it interferes with your other far more important duties in religion or duties as a spouse.
