      Money Received for Visiting Advertising Websites

      Q: Some advertising websites pay money, if you visit their sites, to increase the number of their visitors so that they receive more advertisements from different commercial / industrial companies. In view of the fact that our visiting these sites cost us money as well as time, does receiving this money from them amount to using ill-gotten property? Is there any other problem in it?
      A: If visiting advertising websites does not amount to propagating corruption, spreading lies, showing wrong subjects or involvement in ḥarām practices, there is no harm in visiting them. Nor is there any harm in receiving the said money.
