Q: My apartment complex offers an incentive to pay rent one week earlier than the due date. The apartment complex does a raffle with the names of all the people who pay their rent early and then the winner gets $400 in cash. Last month I paid my rent early and my name was drawn in the raffle and they gave me $400. Is this money halal for me to use?
A: It is permissible.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
