Content creation consulting for record labels


I have become a co-founder in a content creation consulting agency which helps provide hands-on advice to record labels on how to grow the audiences of their artists through short form content.

I got involved as the business person who is quite hands off and does the overall strategy, more as a favour to a friend who actually provides the service.

I initially thought this was halal as it was consulting and content creation, but I fear the specialisation of consulting for the music industry is impermissible.

Any advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated.


May Allah bless you.

According to scholarly perspectives, music and songs are generally deemed as impermissible. Therefore, if you are providing advice on strategies to expand an artist’s audience in the context of music, it could be regarded as “aiding in sin,” which is not considered permissible in Islam.

And Allah knows best!
