Is it permissible to shop from shein
Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullah
For some time, I have been shopping from a Chinese website, shein. The products are extremely cheap and there’s news going around that it’s is so cheap because they use children and underpayment their staff.
After reading about the Muslims conditions in China, a thought came to mind that it is possible that there are oppressed Muslims working in these factories and shopping from such a website would be supporting them.
So would it be better for me to refrain from such website or will it not matter if I do or don’t.
Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,
Since it is not firmly established that they are employing others against their free will, it is permissible to continue shopping with them. You may continue purchasing from them.
