I am working in an organization at site. I work and live at site. I try to strict to office times. Sometimes if I am to work office hours i do. I have some confusion. While coming to site office from home i raech to office 1-2 hour after start of office time as buses take time but my boss/head do not have any problem with this. Sometimes while going on vacation we leave early as my boss give us the permission and official car to drop on bus station.

Is my income halal?I am worried all the time due to my work  that I am making mistakes . But I am a human being cannot be hundred percent perfect.



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

If your boss/head is aware that you come late and he still pays you the full salary, the salary will be halal. [i]

The same ruling will apply when your boss/head gives you early leave.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

وفي الذخيرة: ولو استأجره يوما ليعمل في الصحراء فمطرت السماء بعدما خرج الأجير إلى الصحراء لا أجر له؛ لأن تسليم النفس في ذلك العمل لم يوجد لمكان العذر، وبه كان يفتي المرغيناني كما في الشمني

فلو امتنع ولو حكما كمطر ومرض فلا أجر
