Business sector screening:

Amazon.com Inc. offers a range of products and services through its Online portals. The Company's products include merchandise and content that it purchases for resale from vendors and those offered by third-party sellers. It also manufactures and sells electronic devices. The Company derives revenue from 5 business segments. Two of these business segments consisting of non-permissible activities, contribute more than 5% of the revenue of Amazon. These are:

1 - Physical stores - Its Whole foods segment has sales from Alcohol/Pork/Tobacco
2 - Subscription services - Which includes revenue from annual and monthly fees associated with Amazon Prime memberships (giving access to non-permissible general entertainment content) , digital video/music, and other non-AWS subscription services.

We believe the above non permissible revenue is more than 5% of total revenue of Amazon, hence the business sector seems to be non-compliant."

Few Words About Us!!

"I want to thank everyone who has worked and is working on it. I found such an app. Once I wrote something like "Halal stock app" on Google and downloaded Islamicly. Now it is easy for me to determine which stock is Sharia compliant or not with this app! Green is permitted, Red is haram, Purify dividends, Changes in compliance, and all other features what exactly I was looking for.
This is a great investment in the financial knowledge of the Ummah. Assalamualaikum and thank you for this App"

Mr. Abdul Rashid

lsamicly is a very good app and it helps me lot in my trading business and it is very helpful in finding or winning shariah compliant stocks which I am managing in quite, few numbers of stocks. It is very transparent and it provides us many information on the app and Inshallah and as I understood that you will offer us the web portal as well and I am pretty looking for it to wait so that I can have many things to be screened on the portal Inshallah. Thank you very much, Thank you for making the app for inshallah, Allah Subhanahu wa Talala bless you all Inshallah​
