is it permisable to bribe a speed cop in south africa

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

Rasulullah (salallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “Allah cursed the person who gives bribery and the one who accepts bribery”.

Bribery is prohibited. It is not permissible to bribe anyone including a speed cop. Speeding is an offence in Shariah as well.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
