Are the earnings of a non practicing Muslim halal?

Q: I  have a sister who works as a teacher for a school but she does not take hijab nor pray, but she stays in our house, is her earnings halaal?

الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما ومنه الصدق والصواب

A: The lawfulness of any earnings depends on the lawfulness of the role being performed. Failure to maintain other obligations, despite being a very serious matter, does not make the earnings unlawful. Therefore, if your sister’s income is earned for the performance of a lawful role, her earnings too will be lawful despite her failure to maintain other obligations.
